New York City

After D.C. we rode the train up to New York City. While in New York we did a lot of sightseeing- mainly from the greyline double decker tour buses. And yes we rode on the top level even though it was freezing, but you couldn't see as well from the inside of the bus. The tour took us into Brooklyn and Harlem, which I had never seen before. We saw two broadway shows- The Producers and Phantom of the Opera. They were both fantastic and we really enjoyed them. We also went to the NBC studio and did a tour of the studio. It was really neat and we got to see the Saturday Night Live Studio and while we were there they were doing a dress rehearsal. We saw Scarlett Johansen, Amy Poehler, and Daryl Hammond. Travis also saw Toby from "The Office" as we were getting on the elevators, but I didn't see him. After a long trip we were definitely ready to come home and especially ready to see Tyler. Travis has decided he is definitely not a city boy, but would anyone ever mistake him for one?

Travis in our hotel room. It quite possibly was the smallest hotel room in the world. You are pretty much looking at the entire room. I'm standing in a small space that leads to the bathroom. We were definitely ready to sleep in our King Size bed after that!

Travis in front of Brooklyn Bridge. This was one of the days it was actually very pleasant. We walked around the South Street Seaport area and had lunch. Then we just sat on the pier and enjoyed the sunshine.
