    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!:goodvibes 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?:rotfl:

    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. :eek:

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

    Okay, not so bad-didn't take me as long as I thought! Thank you for the links. :thumbsup2

    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. :lmao:

    That's what I call them too! They can be a bit much sometimes, can't they?

    In case no one else commented on this, that is the Naked Cowboy. They even sell postcards of him. :rotfl: 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! :love: 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. :confused3


    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!

    Ummmmm...no. But I walk six blocks from the train to my office and the cabs do NOT stop at corners, blow red lights, etc. It's like taking your life in your own hand. And when I do have to take a cab from the office to my bosses apartment, I am petrified being in a cab with the morons who drive them.

    Sorry for the delay in posting another update Rosie. A couple of reasons why -- my photopass deadline in fast approaching, so I've been trying to work on the edits of those in my free time (you probably know how insufferably s-l-o-w that photopass website is :faint:); also, we've been hosting a short-term (3 week) French exchange student so have been trying to get her around to visit different things in the area.

    If you give me your schedule I'll be sure to post while you're at work. ;)

    I don't think I've ever seen it where they've kind of "changed him up" from how you normally see im.

    I think they got a great room, at a great location in the city. I don't think they really used the kitchenette much, but that's okay.

    If you know you don't like the curry, then yeah, you might not like some of it. Maybe try tandoori chicken though, it's completely different than a curry.

    That's what I thought too!

    She absolutely loved it. I'm surprised she didn't come home with the soundtrack.

    Well...you're going to have to wait and read about it.

    19 or 91, it’s all good! :welcome: Brook!!

    Perfect!

    You’re welcome. Easy peasy.

    I figured that you and a few other New Yorkers on here would love reading this….it’s always such a neat perspective to hear someone describe their first impressions of something you’re used to everyday.

    Yeah, tough city birds.

    Yes, several people commented. I knew who it was but liked the way she wrote it, from the perspective of someone who didn’t expect to see that.

    I didn’t know there was a Naked Indian, but since reading your post I just saw him on TMZ the other day….apparently he and Naked Cowboy aren’t getting along. One or the other of them has said that the other is “just out for publicity”. Ah, duh.

    They loved Wicked, and loved the hotel, especially the location so that they could get all over that city in the short time they spent there.

    :welcome: Bicki! I’m glad you’re back, and have joined the thread!

    Thanks. I haven’t taken the train but when I was looking at the stops I was afraid they might get confused…I wasn’t sure how obvious it would be when they were riding it.

    Wow, in the movie huh? I’ll tell them. They really enjoyed that meal, I’ve heard about it a few times since.

    Aw, how sweet. (Referring to the proposal, not the rent-a-bike people comment. As if there could be confusion there.)

    No, they didn’t get to the Disney Store. Okay, next time.

    I agree. A little freaky. Somebody else mentioned that they hit you up for tips if you get your picture with them, I didn’t realize that. Guess I’m naïve.

    I know what you mean about attractions that are nearby, but you never get to. So, you’re just going to have to schedule it.

    Thank you. Yep, keep an eye out!

    I know, I know. Lauren has some more written, but I have to get all of the pictures inserted at the right spots….not sure when I’ll get to it at this moment.

    Okay, I see. So you have to be aware of your surroundings and ready to jump, dash, or dodge. Be careful!

    We went to a nearby local attraction, Longwood Gardens, a few days ago and I took some pictures on my iPhone. I played around with them on Instagram, put them into a couple of collage's and....I think they turned out pretty nice. Thought you'd like to see.
