We finally made it to New Jersey from Rochester at about 8pm on Thursday. Taylor had the very last game scheduled - ugh:( So, we got a later start than I wanted to - oh well... the only bummer was that we didn't get to visit "Cake Boss" - Brayden and I really wanted to do that... After we finally found our bus shuttle and checked into the Courtyard Marriott on 5th Ave/40th - we headed out in search of pizza! luckily this restaurant was still open - i dont' remember the name though...
Friday was our NBC tour - so, we headed down to Rockefeller Center and hung around the NBC store for a bit before our tour - There was a lady signing her new book that was released that day and i'm not much of a tv watcher so i'm not sure but i think her name was Roda??? Anway, the tour was good - didn't see anyone or anything too fabulous but it was interesting to see some of the studios!! The boys were excited to buy some "Office" t-shirts and they thought it was pretty cool when we drove through the town of Scranton, PA :)
|After the NBC store, we headed over to the Nintendo Store!|
|This was a blow up Stanley Cup - Hopefully one day he'll be kissing the real thing!!|
|I thought this was cool - it was made up of all hockey sticks - it was a light fixture & TV stand thingy...|
|We had dinner at Planet Hollywood|
|At Grand Central Station! We adventured through the station to take the subway to the Yankees game and we made it!|
|and... here the boys are COOKING in the 100+ degree temps at Yankee stadium at 7pm! It was miserable|
we took the subway home too - i was so proud of ourselves!!!
My first impression of NYC was that it reminded me alot of China (Beijing & Chongqing). some of the smells, the amount of people everywhere etc...
