Taking a big bite out of The Apple


Carl and I spent the week after Thanksgiving in New York City. Our daughter, Jessica, moved to Astoria, Queens in June and that was enough excuse to revisit NYC. We spent two nights with her family, then five nights at The Essex House in Central Park South.

We were there many years ago when I showed my card line at the National Stationery Show but we didn't really have time to do a lot. This trip would be different! We planned to be tourists. It was the perfect time of year to be there. We were blessed with perfect weather...cold but clear and sunny. The store windows were decorated for the holidays,  the streets were filled with happy people.

One of my favorite things about traveling is taking photographs. So here's my New York City! And, by the way, all the photos were taken with my iPhone. :)

Ethan knew about these boards in Battery Park that make sounds when you jump on them

We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge

Carl, the engineer, was fascinated by the structure

My favorite photo of the bridge
A friendly woman asked us if we'd like our picture taken together- Central Park

I always try to find some great graffiti to stand in front of

  1. Great photos, Lori! You have a wonderful eye, but you knew that. One correction: you labeled Grand Central Station as the New York Public Library. (Vanderbilt & 42nd)
