The Big Apple, Part I



After a brief scare that we might be stranded in Chicago by their raging winter storm, we made it back to Louisville in the wee hours of the morning today! We had an amazing vacation to New York City! I will definitely wear your eyes and ears out if I try to post everything today, so I'm just going to start with a few pictures from the sights we saw and will post more as the week progresses about Broadway tickets, museum stops, NYC curiosities and more!

Hope you enjoy the pictures! We definitely enjoyed taking them!

The NYC skyline from atop the Empire State Building during our late night NYC adventure!


One of many unsuccessful (and cold) attempts to get a good picture on top of the Empire State Building at night!


The style of my favorite European store - H & M. (I discovered this store during my semester in Austria during college...where they pronounced it "Hah und EMMmm!")


A little of the craziness of NYC!


David admiring the system of Grand Central Terminal upon arrival.



Checking out the window displays and holiday flurry at Macy's 34th Street Store!


The Muppet Workshop at FAO Schwartz.



Enjoying our view of the city from atop the tour bus. Of course, we loved it because of all the odd tidbits we gathered...like Janet Jackson's apartment building, how many taxis are in NYC and the origin of Macy's star.


Stayed tuned for more tomorrow!
