Somehow we've never lost one, knock on wood. But I'm like you, it's too much bother so I just rely on whatever the hotel's got.

Oh, whew, thank you. We did trade-out some DVC points for their hotel room, so there is a small Disney tie-in.

Love reading Lauren's post! She did a pretty good job. Looks like she took lots of pictures and notes too, haha.

Were they really sitting where the bags were? Sounds like they got yelled at for nothing.

All those pictures make me want to return to NYC! I just love the city.

My condolances to you and your former boss' family.

I'm very sorry for your loss. I have 2 co-workers who have loss family members in the last 3 weeks and it's never easy. The tragic losses are the worse.

I really enjoyed Lauren's trip reporting. You have taught her well. There was lots of detail and it was witty and fun. She also did great on the photos. The only thing missing was food pictures, hopefully there will be some in the next update.

Thanks Yuki. They did take lots of pictures and kept notes -- I drilled that into them before they left. I guess they got the message.

Apparently so. From the picture it looks like all the rest of the train-car.

She's the only one in the family that's read any of my trip reports. She hasn't read them all, but enough to get the idea.

Ha ha, yeah, there were no food pictures in that chapter. We have some coming up...not as much as I would have done, but hopefully it will be enough to tide you over.

Scenes from an Italian restaurant

I should have mentioned last time that I, the NYC trip planner, didn’t send the ladies off empty-handed. I gave them hardcopies of the following documents, as well as pdf versions on Judy’s phone, to help them on their way.

The overall NYC Plan



And train information









Okay, back to Lauren…


We went to an Italian restaurant called Patsy’s which wasn’t far from our hotel. It was really nice and formal in there.





They also had pictures of tons of famous people who had visited the restaurant. The food was pricey and we weren’t too starving so my mom and I shared a meal. We got some freshly baked bread, salad and stuffed manicotti.



All of the food was delicious! The other nice thing was that there were always people coming around to serve you or making sure you were okay. The only thing was that I felt like they were watching me eat, and I don’t like that very much.
Then we walked over to Central Park. The closer we got, the more people would heckle us about renting a bike or a carriage or anything. It was really annoying to have to tell all of those people “no” but they were persistent. I really liked Central Park, especially the whole craziness of it.





It was weird for there to be trees and grass and playgrounds in the middle of the city. But it really goes with the rest of the city. There are old buildings next to shining new ones. So in a sense, Central Park blends right in. We saw this nice bridge so I had Mom take a picture of me on it, overlooking the rest of the park.





On our way out, I saw a group of Muslims praying. I guess it was that time of day. I didn’t take a picture because I didn’t want to call attention and I thought it might be disrespectful. At the entrance to the park they had this beautiful statue, pedestal thing. It was really nice.



I liked this building because I thought it was interesting how it went in and out on the side.



And not far from that was this building with intricate designs and beautiful carvings.





Then James texted us that he wanted a picture of Times Square, so we headed in that direction. We stopped in the M&M store which had three stories and an escalator! They had all kinds of colors of M&M’s from floor to ceiling. They also had this machine that would read your mood and tell you what color you were.



I was aqua green.



I was aqua green. The message said “there’s nothing average about you.” I thought that was cool because the girl that went before me got the same color but the message was different.



Then I took a picture of the cylinders with different types of colored M&M’s inside. I think this one had different NY sports teams and stuff. The picture is blurry because I was having trouble taking it over the dancing employees.



Then we went out closer to Times Square and Mom was a little late in taking the picture of Mickey and Minnie Mouse.



There was one interesting thing that I didn’t take a picture of. There was a man out in the street (a safe part) that was wearing only underwear and playing the guitar. If you looked at him straight on, it didn’t look like he was wearing anything at all. Then there was this photo of Times Square that I took for James, and I guess for all of you Dis people…



I saw a Bubba Gump restaurant sign and had to take a picture. For those of you who’ve seen Forrest Gump, you know why.



Then, as we were passing a Toys R Us, I saw that there was a Ferris Wheel INSIDE! I just had to go in and take a picture.



Plus, as you can see, the cars were all different kinds of toys like the fisher price car, Legos, potato head, Tonka trucks, Barbie and other themes. Then we actually had ice cream inside the Toys R Us. I had midnight cookies and cream and Mom had butter pecan. Sorry, no pictures there.
On our way back, we went into a store and I saw this really small penny. What was funny about it was it said. “Obama penny. Getting smaller and smaller and smaller…” I just had to laugh and I’m sorry if I offended anyone. We also passed by a Fluffy’s Bakery which I found to be a very odd name. We were looking for food to buy for breakfasts in the future, but all they really had were sweet baked goods and some really awesome looking doughnuts. Then we went to a supermarket near the Manhattan Club and got some bagels, fruit and cream cheese for future breakfasts. We then walked back to our hotel to check on our room.



Coming up: Hotel room pictures, Dinner, and our Wicked evening!

13 minutes too late! *drat*

Anyway...you should teach Lauren the fine skill of avoiding eye contact with people so they don't try to sell you anything. It works like a charm

And I take it you haven't shown her the "Naked Cowboy?" He's the one with the guitar in the middle of the street!

There's an M&M store in the Florida Mall in Orlando. Doesn't sound like it's as big as the one in Times Square though.

Arrgh! Jill beat me!

I didn't remember the ferris wheel inside there, how fun is that. I love Central Park, there's always something magical about it to me, like I'm in a movie just by being there.

Fun afternoon with lots of nice sightseeing, a "real" Italian lunch complete with hovering and street heckling.

Sounds about perfect to me.

Too late for 1 Judy?

Your lunch looks so yummy and I love the picture of Minnie and Mickey. Awesome!

Beautiful pictures of central park.

Can't wait to see the room.

Glen - so sorry to hear about your former boss. That is very sad.
