One day in New York.

We flew over from San Francisco to New York, and had an evening with family there, then one full day of seeing the city, and then we left for Connecticut the following day. So, – here are some things we did on that one full day.

First Subway stop was China Town…

The kids got fun signs for their doors. They chose the theme of their poster, and then the artist wrote their names on them right there. Fun!

Then we took the Subway to Times Square. What a New York place!! You just look up at all these tall buildings with huge screens on them! It is such a non stop kind of place!

We visited the huge toy-store there, with the Ferris-wheel inside of it!!! And look who we met outside the shop:

We had lunch at a place where they sold pizza for a dollar a slice… Just perfect! 🙂

A highlight for our baseball-boy was to visit the Yankees Store, of course. We all got new baseball-caps! 🙂

And our Hello Kitty girl loved to visit a Hello Kitty store:

We took a trip on the Staten Island Ferry (*which by the way is free!).

Later we went to Ground Zero, saw the Freedom Tower and went shopping at Century 21. Afterwards we picked up various take-away-foods, and sat out on the Brooklyn Bridge and had dinner watching the view of the skyline of New York by night.

We will come back to New York again at the end of our trip in the States, but then it will just be the children and me, so it was nice to cover the basics when we still had our Abba with us. He loves New York, and it is really nice to tour a city with someone who has that type of relationship to the place. I cannot say that I feel the same way about the city, but somehow being there with him, gives me a certain excitement about the place as well! 🙂
