Hello,
Great report so far. The Naked Cowboy is a NYC tradition. Crazy taxi's are the norm. "Wicked" is my favorite. The room looks really nice.

Looking forward to more.

It's cute to see through a teenagers eyes (because they haven't learned yet what to look for-like us mom's have for them ) what is cool and what would be a no way jose for most of us.
That shower is scary!!

The room looked awesome! Very nice!

The set to Wicked looked great, too. Glad Lauren and Judy liked it. I think any show on broadway would be awesome.

Mmmmm...Indian food! I love it!

My daughter Lauren (in some of the NYC pictures) is writing the New York portion of the trip, since I wasn't along for it. I knew about the Naked Cowboy but didn't edit her writing so that you folks could read it from the perspective of someone who didn't know to expect such a sight!

Oh oops, I keep on forgetting while writing the comments that the true author of this TR isn't writing for this certain portion. Definitely a change of scenery in terms of how I comment on my TRs. Hope I didn't throw you off at times

I think they eventually got the temperature up, and the room worked out really well for them.

They'd highly recommend it to you.

rachel09985! I'll go out on a limb and assume you're Rachel. Thanks for joining.

We used to get promo-ads in the mail for Great Wolf Lodge, but we haven't for a long time.

I saw that but didn't understand how you made the typo until you cleared it up....but I completey understand now that I have an iPhone. That autofill feature is handy, but can really mess you up sometimes.

We love it too. When I saw that they were building Kidani Village, we couldn't resist buying-in.

Hi Scott! I remember you from Dan's reports, I believe.

Yeah, I think the ladies got the real New York experience!

I agree, but this was the one they wanted to see. It didn't disappoint.

No, not a problem at all. I'm just sorry that you don't get a personal reply from someone in-the-know, but I'm getting her to write the chapters so that'll have to be enough!

It was on her list too, along with something else later in the trip.

I know! I thought they should leave him, too! I supposed they didn't have the authority to ad lib. It is really cool that the parts do come off - they could really work with that one.

Loved the update, Lauren! Cute room - looks like they stole their kitchenette design from DVC! The room is actually bigger than I expected for downtown NY.

I'm not sure I would go for Indian food, although we had friends from India when I was a child and I liked her cooking. Since I've grown up, I haven't really cared for Moroccan or African spices, so I have a feeling Indian would taste like that. I don't like the yellow curry for sure.

Crazy cab ride! I think it makes the experience authentic, right?

I'm so happy you got to see Wicked! It is truly amazing! I have the soundtrack, and I love Defying Gravity, too! I think it made me cry the first few times I listened to it in the car. I had to stop playing it while driving.

Looking forward to your next story - sounds like maybe you slept in?

19 pages. That's what I get for being late.

I've got coffee, I've got some time....see you in a bit.

Okay, not so bad-didn't take me as long as I thought! Thank you for the links.

I LOVE reading about the first impressions of NYC! It brings me back to my first copule times here and the awe I had at some things. Now it's just "normal" and when we visit the rest of the nation we are in awe.

Quote:
This one picture shows the first of many pigeons we would see throughout our trip. My mom called them “rats with wings” which I have to say is very accurate.
That's what I call them too! They can be a bit much sometimes, can't they?

Quote:
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.
In case no one else commented on this, that is the Naked Cowboy. They even sell postcards of him. And apparently, though I haven't seen him yet, there is now also a Naked Indian.

Glad to hear the ladies enjoyed Wicked! The set is truly incredible, and the scene changes alone are amazing. The hotel looks really nice too! Many NYC hotels, even the expensive ones, aren't that great and are reallyyyyy tiny. Glad to see the Manhattan Club is a good one!

I'm here and by the looks of it very behind! Thanks for the message, I've been away from the DIS for a bit so it was a nice surprise to find! I'll type as I read along. Nice family picture in the intro. I like the Senior trip title!

That building that Lauren liked is a movie theatre and the rest of it is a hotel! Good job on the trip plan. I love the not the Jersey Penn station reminder. Patsy's is really famous here, I have never been but it supposed to be really good! It's also in the Muppets take Manhattan!

Tell Lauren not to feel bad about saying no to the rent a bike people, there has been an explosion of these businesses in the city and frankly I think they are more annoying than the pigeons! Central Park! I love it there to me it's a peaceful place in the middle of all the craziness. Dh also proposed to me there so it's pretty special to me!

Aren't the M&M store and Toys R Us amazing?!?! Did they get to visit the Disney store? Fluffy's is right around the corner from my job! I should have given you my number to pass along to Judy we could have met! I forgot...next time!

Oh yeah and those Mickey and Minnie mouses freak me out! I know tourists love them but I'm just concerned about who is inside those costumes. The just buy those costumes and then go out taking pictures with people,then they ask people for a tip in the end.


That Indian food looked really good yum! I have yet to see Wicked, I guess its that I live here I can go when I want mentality but now I'm motivated! I have seen Phantom and loved it!

Great job on the TR so far Lauren can't wait to read more!


Now that I'm all caught up, I'll be keeping an eye out for Judys!
