New York City on Christmas Eve

New York City was wonderful fun. The top pic is Stephanie in front of the Sbarro Pizza place that was in the Office TV show. Or mentioned in said show. Paul and I are in front of the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center. Katie and Mark by the ice skating rink at Rockefeller Center. I have a lot of pics but they can wait until I get home.

We took the 8:45 train at the station closest to Katie and Mark's home. This was at Pougkeepsie, NY. The ride is almost two hours one way. After we got to Grand Central Station we hit the ground running. Did some shopping, went to Times Square, saw the Today Show set and the famous red steps, there are pics. We had lunch at Rosie O'Grady's Pub, shopped some more on our way to see the Rockettes. We had balcony seats for the show. After all the exercise and lunch it would have been easy to fall asleep during the show, and Mark did. But just for a few seconds. The show was beautiful, fast and fun, lots of dancing and singing. Of course. It was so worth the trip to see. A great experience.

After the show we shopped on the way back to the station. Grabbed some snacks for the trip home and headed back to Milton. The day was so fun that the sore feet didn't matter at all. There is so much to see and do in the city.
