Great update Lauren! Having read some of the writings from my HS Senior / College Freshmen years, I can honestly say I would not have been able to spin such a tale in that chapter of my life. (Let's just say my first college English class was catered towards the more "redneck" freshmen.)

I can't wait to read more! (You know if you joined the Disney college program, you could write a TR that lasted an entire semester. I actually read one of those. Years ago. And not on this site. Quite an intriguing story I must say.

And then of course Glenn would be compelled to come and visit to take advantage of the cast member discount and there would be even more TR's for us to read.

But I digress.

LOVED Wicked when it came to San Antonio, and the stage in NYC looks even more amazing than the touring stage.

I have never tried Indian food and I don’t know that I ever will. But I applaud your culinary courage and am glad that it was a good meal for you gals.

I also enjoy your tourist-esque photos as they are exactly the type of thing I’d be taking. (Kudos rednecks on holiday.)

Keep up the good work!

We love Indian food too. Someone had just told me about that Scoutmob app just before they left....I was kinda surprised that she remembered to check it.

The Manhattan Club 200 West 56th Street. Between Broadway and 7th Ave. 3 blocks from Central Park in Midtown, and near the Theater District. Wow, I sound like I know what I'm talking about. Even if I don't.

I guess the scary cab ride is a requirement. Glad you liked the photos.

part one update= 2 one of her at dinner where you can see her lower half of in the picture with the food...right after that one we have her arm in the picture of the food (bread)..so total of 2 in the first part.

part two update = 1 judys reflection in the windown/mirror

time to take rosies points off the board.

I think Marv already pointed out where you went astray.

Hmmm, there might not be a lot of them in your neck of the woods, but you should try it sometime!

I agree, a good sign is a busy restaurant...but they liked it so who am I to argue?

I hope you get to WDW next year also!

Well, in post #233 she detailed where each one could be found and mentioned that the chapter was two separate posts (in a vain attempt to get a second point), so we the Rules Committee will leave the point with her.

Your room looks lovely. When I was there, we stayed in a very tiny room with two Queen beds so it's nice to see that not every NYC hotel room is just all crammed in there like an apartment. Sorry to hear about your heating problems though I think most hotel rooms are generally VERY cold especially during the summer (I'm guessing you were there during the "record highs").

So funny you guys got in with a crazy Taxi driver. They really are EVERYWHERE and most others were the same way, but I think you got to be a little crazy and daring in a place like New York. The restaurant looks adorable and the food looks great. Indian food truly is some great yet unique tasting food (:

Awesome to hear you guys saw Wicked and up close in the Orchestra seating. I saw it in the mezzanine (balcony) and thought it was fantastic from there, but from your pictures it looks almost better. I mean, especially when you are looking at the stage straight on instead of down upon. The dragon is pretty nifty and I love how they used those wires, lots of awesome surprises. Love all the other pictures from the Gershwin you got too, the map was probably one of the coolest things I saw. Glad to hear you guys made it out of there without being trampled as it seemed you came close!

Times Square truly is beautiful at night is it, unless you are trying to walk around then it is dangerous... just saying. That's so cool about the hotel not having a thirteenth floor. I've heard things about hotels doing that, I wished I had looked at where I was staying.

Can't wait to read more!

I'm picturing lots of writing of stories straight out of Blazing Saddles. "More beans GreatBiscuit?"

I've suggested that. Marlene seems more interested than Lauren.

Biscuit, Biscuit, Biscuit. Get thee to an Indian restaurant! Try any of the following: vegetable korma, butter chicken, chicken tikka masala, tandoori chicken, and get some naan (flatbread). You won't regret it.

I think it was a good trade. Not too many points, a great location, no hassle.

Not a problem at all that you didn't catch it earlier.

I don't know if every NYC hotel room is that spacious....this place was actually a timeshare, so it might have a few more amenities than your average hotel room.

I'm not sure if the ladies just couldn't figure out how to turn down the A/C or what. I quite often go into hotel rooms for the first time and have to turn the A/C and fan down, or the thermostat or something. It seems like the housekeepers like to crank it.

They were in New York from June 14 to the 17th. It was perfect weather....the heat wave came a couple of weeks later.

I think you're right -- to survive in that traffic, you have to match their style and pace of driving.

Unfortunately I can't comment...since this is Lauren's Dad posting and I wasn't there. You know more about it than I do!

I've seen some hotels with a 13th and some without. You never know.

Great!

Sorry I'm a little behind on the update.

The room looks really pretty...and big. I hate when rooms are so cold though and you can't get the temp adjusted.

Lauren cracked me up on the cabdrivers...they are just like that in Downtown Chicago...I pray for my life every day I go to work.

Glad Lauren and Judy enjoyed their meal at the Indian restaurant (that and Mexican I just do not care for).

I'm so glad they enjoyed the play (I've missed it every time it has been in Chicago). Great photos inside the theater.

FYI- Kalahari in Sandusky would be closer to Pennsylvania. Great Wolf Lodge is nice too.
