Valentines in the HEART of NYC

Haha... Jenni, me, somehow earned the title as the official "tour guide" for our trip to Manhattan. Valentines day, we spent the morning with the Skeens in NJ and then all rode together with Rich, Mirit and Asher into the city. There we found a great place to enjoy some famous NY pizza... it was one of Rich's fav. places near 12th street (they use to live there). The fresh basil leaves atop the thin-crust and fresh mozzerella pizza was fantastic (even for one who is selective about her pizza- hmhm).
Rich sent us in the right direction to catch subway and we made our way toward the Staten Island Ferry. Along the way saw...

  • Ground Zero
  • Wall Street and the NY Stock Exchange
  • Statue of GW where he was sworn is a Pres. of the United States
Then made our way to...
  • the Statue of Liberty from the Staten Is. Ferry
Then uptown to...
  • Central Park (southwest and east end) with the ice rink--- it was dark
  • 5th Avenue- windows and St. Patricks
  • Rockafeller Center
  • Maxi's for dinner on 42nd (?)... great Valentines Dinner to end the day!
  • Revisited part of Time Square
  • Port Authority to catch the bus to NJ
**Sorry No Pictures... Maea was all over it on Saturday***

How fun! I went there in August 1989 with my folks for my High School graduation. Rich was our tour guide as well. I have a picture of myself in front of and on top of the Twin Towers.
