Sounds like you've had some yummy food experiences! Have fun in NYC!

I used the same photpass for WDW and DL in 2011, I had them all sent to me on the one photo CD.

What have you got planned for the big apple?
We're staying at Doubletree also, 14th floor looking right into Times Square, seriously amazing!
It's 5am here, my body just wants to be awake

We bought a NewYorkPass which gives us entry to many different attractions under 1 ticket, I think there is about 90 attractions so we'll start that today

I have enjoyed the food so far
We have a list for NY for what we have to try also
Thanks for the photo pass info, so glad we'll be able to use it again!

We just got back and used the NewYork Pass as well. As a family of five it was cheaper than paying entry to everywhere and certainly allowed us to see more than I would have if I was picking and choosing on entry fee considerations. We caught the subway down to 9-11 memorial one day. Walked to battery park then used it for the trip out to statue of liberty and Ellis island then caught the new York water taxi down under the Brookly bridge and up the Hudson back up tondo the intrepid in the afternoon then used the NYWT double decker bus to come back to the Rockefeller center to do top of the rock. Came back down in to Times Square for dinner and a wander thru the crazies and then walked back to our hotel at Affinia. It was a really well utilised day that only had the 9-11 bit planned at the start. My six year old was amazing and managed to walk the entire 12 hours we were out and about. And for him that is nothing short of a miracle!!

I think that's impressive for a 26 year old, let alone a 6 year old. What a marvellous little man.

The rain defeated us today
It was a steady downpour for about 6 hours
So tomorrow we have to hit it hard, so much to fit it, but I did get some great photos, the architecture here is amazing!

This hotel is great, and the location

So many police around too, I've noticed people stopping everywhere and speaking to them and from what I've seen they're very approachable (except for the swat team disembarking their vehicle in Times Square with big guns but nobody batted an eyelid and they just all went about their business)

I too was blown away by the police presence. It actually really helped make me feel super safe while I was there.

I think it's funny how people don't take red lights seriously when they are crossing roads around Times Square. They just keep walking and make the cars stop

I (we) love this place, I'm already putting things in the memory bank for next time.
We haven't done alot, Top of The Rock tomorrow, the last two days visibility has been at 0%
We did see Stevie Wonder today though, not something you see every day
This hotel is awesome, great location, very safe, I haven't been anywhere that I feel uneasy at.

Today we also did The Met museum, the museum of natural history and very briefly Central Park, then F.A.O Schwarz.

Flying to LA tomorrow night
The upside? Disneyland...my happy place

Sounds like you've had an awesome time in NYC, definitely the one place I most want to visit - couldn't swing it time wise or $ wise for this trip but next time I am soooooo there! Good to hear you've felt safe there, have been toying with the idea of DD and I going on our own in a couple of years for a girl's trip.

I knew you would fall in love with NYC, just as our family has. It is weird how safe you feel in that city but you just do.

It just gets under your skin, that place. I'm excited to go to Paris and London and see if they have the same affect as NYC has had on us.

Another NYClover here Doubletree is a great location, I really wanted to get a photo with the police in the 'Fashion District' as their uniforms say that on their arm.
