New York Trip

14 replies • Last post

Hey guys, I just got back from New York on Sunday night and spent the last day getting all caught up with stuff.

I ended up having a great time, and saw a lot of cool sites: Central Park, Times Square, Wall Street, the new World Trade Center and Memorial, and Chelsea Market.

I ate some good food and had a great time. I was actually there when they topped off the new World Trade Center 1 Tower at 1,776 feet.

Here are some pics. I have more but figured I wouldn't bore you with all the photos.

Here are the pics in order:

WTC 1 after being topped out

Piece of jet fuselage that crashed into WTC

Times Square

Late Show Sign.

If anyone wants the photos of me posing provocatively with the Notorious BIG or Justin Bieber at the wax museum, you can get them! Tongue

Awesome, 'Slim! I am definitely interested in seeing more pics. lol

That is one place I have never visited. Were you with the entire family? Glad you had a great time.

Thanks for sharing! Smile

EAT! Seriously, NYC has some of the best food in the world. So many cultures combine to offer the best food experiences. Everything there is great, from the Halal food carts to the upscale sushi places, you can't go wrong when eating in New York.

Well Hope, here is the Notorious BIG and I having a moment with his cane (Note the hand placement). I think my Justin Bieber one is on my wife's phone, but here is one of me getting down Stevie Wonder style.

Thanks guys. The wax museum was great, but I think I got my biggest thrills by posing provocatively with the mannequins.

Well depending on where you live, you can get a whale of a deal in terms of flights and stuff. My wife and I scored VERY cheap round trip tickets ($70) from Detroit to Trenton, New Jersey. We then hopped on a train and went from there to Newark, New Jersey for $10 (an hour ride at most). It really was a great deal and pretty affordable. We flew Frontier and one man we were talking to said you can fly even cheaper if you book at the right time.

Keep an eye out for sites like Airfarewatchdog for cheap flights. It really works wonders!
