Last weekend, while hosting the bride to be and two other maids...we finished our dress duties early and headed into the big city. The maids had never been and as was typical they spent much of their time looking up. It really is amazing how much vertical storage of people, places and things exist in NYC.

And it always amazes me that although the city is a little more than an hour away by train (and less if I decide to play kamikaze driver with the taxis) we never go in unless we're playing tourist with friends and family.

Even on a dreary rainy day, the city never disappoints.

On your mark, get set (first one to hit a pedestrian scores 20 pts)

Great backdrop/view from the M+M store in Time Square.

I like the new pedestrian way in Time Square, but
what is UP with all the people in the lawn chairs?

Plus none of them were talking -
it was like a statue display in a strange museum.

You gotta do the street vendor thing.

That guy is saying, "Look, it's a bird, it's a plane...."

We didn't go to the top - but we at least made it to the ground floor.

What else? The Empire State.

Event a standpipe can do in a pinch when your feet are sore from walking.

Now I'm even sadder that my girlfriend just cancelled our summer trip to the East Coast. Damned economy, layoffs and, almost worse it seems, partial layoffs.

It looks like a great time.

I've only been twice. I was afraid of the dead fish in Chinatown, and I loved the light-up Coke bottle on Times Square. I'd like to say I'd go to NYC all the time if I lived an hour away ... but the expense and the hectic journey would probably send me tripping the other way. I lean west. What can I say?
