My brother-in-law and his kids are still in town visiting from Oregon, so yesterday we rented a mini van and hit New York City to play tourist for the day. It was Me, Lori, her brother Stu, brother Bruce and his kids Phil, Erica and Alex. Larry The Lizard came along to make the adventure complete. It was fun running around Manhattan hitting the traditional tourist spots like Times Square, Broadway, Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center... we even visited a couple things that I hadn't seen before. We all went to the top of Rockefeller Plaza (Top of The Rock) where there are three levels of observation decks. Even on a foggy day there were some very cool views. Plus the elevators there had glass roofs and illuminated elevator shafts for a unique trip up 67 stories. Then we took the subway to Battery Park to get a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty and visit Ground Zero - a most uncool view, but an important spot to see to say the least. View photos here.
