A Travellerspoint blog




sunny 16 °C

To end my winter trip I stopped off in New York City, to visit with my brother, parents and meet Robin! Greg's delightful girlfriend Robin's business, has a corporate apartment for us to stay in right across the street from Carnagie hall and the Russian Tea room. We couldn't ask fo a nicer location. Only one block from Central Park. What a fantastic time was had with almost the complete family; missing was David! It is a rarity for us to be two siblings with both parents at the same time. My father has come to life in NY and has really enjoyed seeing all that Greg and Robin have on offer. Two Broadway shows; a hockey game where the Sens won against the New York Rangers and numerous famous restaurants! I wasn't there for that but have partaken in on of the two shows: Book of Mormon! hilarious show. I was surprised at how many shows I have seen when I started crossing them off in the Playbill! I am so happy to have spent this time together!

Before leaving the big apple I managed to share a lovely tea with my Mom at the Russian Tea Room; it was across the street from our apt. I was going from NY to Toronto with my mom to visit my cousin Lillian who is dying from melanoma and liver cancer! As per her request I picked up some pastrami (close second to Montreal smoked meat) at the famous Carnegie Deli around the corner from our apt.........! Everything is close to this lovely place.

I will return soon with Dara to NY so we can partake in so much more that NYC has to offer.

Here are some photos that would be familiar to so many people


Going to see the 911 memory's al museum was quite something's note! Not for the faint at heart!`


From there we had a lovely Jewish meal at the famous Sammy's steak house


A walk on my own through Central Park was a delight


Then some more views as I walked the street of Manhattan!


And last but not least afternoon tea at the Russian Tea Room
