Good morning everyone! Here's a picture of the Brooklyn Bridge I took with my phone during the cruise. If Brooklyn (the largest of the 5 boroughs in New York) were it's own city it would be the 4th largest in the country! Some other little known facts...the Brooklyn Bridge was designed by John A. Roebling, but it was the 2nd bridge of this type he designed. The first one is here in my hometown of Cincinnati. The third one he designed is large, red, and very well known. It's in California. I'm very glad to be home. New York City is very loud. the constant bustle and noise were getting to me by the end. Also, as I said yesterday, a certain black cat is very happy to have me home. I did make it up to Central Park (briefly). I saw Benny Goodman's clarinet and Gene Krupa's drumsticks in the Carnegie museum. (Goosebumps!!) I hailed a cab I rode the subway I saw Times Square I saw the Rockefeller Center I saw Grand Central Terminal (in all fairness, my hotel was right next door) I ate genuine New York style pizza I went to the Garment District I saw the Statue Of Liberty and Ellis Island I got a standing ovation in Carnegie Hall There were so many more things I would have liked to do, but time was so short, and there is so much to see and do! Barry - I hope you are recovering quickly from your dental work. No fun that. Rock - We'll make you a new TV show - "The Book Hunter" Julie - Sounds like a great elevator! Glad you got to spend the day with your father. Funny story - apparently my DSIL hadn't heard about the trip and when she sent out the family invite for Father's Day, I declined with my legitimate excuse. She replied jokingly, "I'll be at my opening at the Louvre." I had to tell her it wasn't a joke!! So on Sunday I teased her in reply and told her to have a good opening day at the Louvre!
