Train ride into see the sights for the day

My son and I decided to catch the train to Penn Station and see the sights for the day. And as you can imagine, the City is alive and moving early. We left Albany around 7 a.m. and arrived in NYC around 9:15 a.m. and even in the rain the people were out and about.

I don't think I remember walking so much, and seeing so many interesting sights:

Giant button and needle on Fashion Avenue
How often do you see something like a giant button and needle sticking through it?  Or for that matter a six foot Elmo character walking around?

We saw the usual sights: the Empire State Building, Times Square, Madison Square Garden (which was under construction of some kind so I didn't get a picture of it), Planet Hollywood, and Radio City Music Hall.

And then there was the Hershey's store, I was very tempted to go inside, but was afraid I'd blow all my spending money in there, so I opted for a photo instead!


  1. It looks like you had a great time. I love the photos! It's been years since I've been to New York. I love big cities. I work in Boston, but it's still not New York. lol

  2. We did have a great time, thanks Pam.

    My only regret is I didn't make it to the Lion Brand shop on 44th. I completely forgot to stop in and check them out!
