New York City!!

Road Trips are so Much Fun..

Recently Sunshine and I went on another road trip, over the next couple of posts, I will share with you are experiences of setting up the road trip, some lessons learned and places we visited.  I really hope you all enjoy the stories as much as we enjoyed living them.

Summer vacation time  is on its way.  It has been very wet here in Virginia.  Our typical July 4th consists of going to downtown DC and watching the parade then the fireworks.  A long day, considering it does not get dark until 9 pm and the parade starts at noon.  This year we took some time off from work, loaded up the SUV and headed to visit some friends.

Our first stop was New York City.  Sunshine is from the Philippines and her old neighbor has moved to New York. We decided to stop by and visit.

 Visiting friends in Queens, which if you are wondering is no where near Syracuse, we loaded on the subway and headed to Rockefeller Square to see were they put up the Christmas tree.  We get off the subway and see Radio City Music hall right up the street and take a moment to snap some photos.  
The subway was not busy, and our guide was not familiar with the area.  So we fire up the smart phones and determine, we need to take a right.  We start walking down the block and observe a class of young ladies having their picture taken imitating the Rockets. 



We Make it Rockefeller Square and lo and behold, there is a stone hedge area.  What is this all about.  I will have to provide an update later, I confess I have not done my research on that part of New York City yet.   Walking around the square we see the falls and the restaurants where the tree would go.  It is a great looking place and seems like you could have a good time just eating and having coffee.  We had a schedule a keep.  Not to mention the caravan was getting hungry and we needed to find some food.  Sunshine contends she has never been to Times Square, in the day time, so off we go.





Although we did not eat at the american staple fast food establishment of McDonalds, I did think the sign was very interesting for a burger joint. Later walking by McDonalds, this is a walk up place and I did not notice any tables. Does not mean they are not there, just I did not see them.

Keep coming back, Tronster will take you through the trip from DC to New York, New York to Cooperstown, The baseball hall of fame, Toronto and other exciting places we visited on our little road trip.
