New York, New York

This is going to be a short post as I really want to finish the final read-through on the book this afternoon.  It's pouring here in NYC and although there are few things I hate more than sitting in my hotel room, the weather makes it the perfect time to get some work done.

I ventured out this morning and made my way up to Macy's.

See green Macy's sign on the right?  This isn't a very artistic shot - I had more of a colorful umbrella scene in mind, but discovered that if you stop in the middle of a busy NYC sidewalk on a rainy day, you might get your eye poked out by a short Asian lady carrying a large umbrella.  I grabbed a quick shot and moved on - deciding that it was worth losing an artistic photo in order to keep both eyes.

At Macy's I found exactly what I was looking for - a pair of dark blue Not Your Daughter's Jeans (these are the ONLY jeans in the world I will pay $98 a pair for. They are as comfortable as pajama bottoms, but look like snug-fitting, stylin' jeans) and then scored big-time on a pair of black velour ones for 60% off.  They look dressy, so will be great for all the high-end social events we attend in Wolfeboro. In other words, I'll wear then whenever I tag along to NY with hubby this winter...

Then back to the hotel:

From hotel room.  Note gold-topped building.  Haven't a clue what it is, other than cool.
Closer view of cool, gold-topped building through the fog.

Another view from the hotel window.
All over NY are these wonderful old buildings nestled in among the brash, young skyscrapers.  I love it.
Once I put down the camera, I engaged in a little Instant Messaging with both kids to finalize plans for dinner tonight and as soon as I'm finished here, it's work-time.

I want to leave you with one last image.  Photo below was taken at about 6 pm on Saturday night from my Home Office.  Can you believe people aren't pounding down the door to buy this place??? We don't know whether to cheer or cry.

  1. I have vertigo looking at those pictures! Very Cool. Have fun with your boys and enjoy your shopping in the Big Apple. Bet the Macy's in NYC beats the Macy's in Portsmouth by a mile.

  2. We walked by the cool gold-topped building last night. It's the Time Life Building on Park Avenue.

  3. Hello,

    I am thinking the Macy's in NYC bears absolutely no resemblance to any Macy's outside of NYC and, most definitely, to the one in Newington. How gret to be in an exciting atmosphere and near your men!
