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.|

All over NY are these wonderful old buildings nestled in among the brash, young skyscrapers. I love it.
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.
