New York...

This past week I visited New York for the very first time. I had an amazing time. It's such a beautiful city. My hubby had to work for the first two days.

So what's a girl to do alone in New York?



Well, you go here...




And see this...




And when you haven't had enough, you go see this...


On Sunday, my hubby didn't work so we put on our walking shoes for some major site seeing.

First, we got a tour of Fox News. My cousin, Rick Reichmuth, does the national weather for Fox.




Here we are on the set of Fox and Friends with my cousin.


More pictures of the studio...




Anyone know who's office this is?


Here is Rockefeller Center. Our hotel was right around the corner.

Saint Patrick's Cathedral...




My very handsome cousin also gave us a tour of Central Park.







Can anyone guess who this is...



My hubby refused to leave Central Park until we found this statue. It was very important for the kids.





Can anyone guess which recent movie this building was in? You probably have kids if you know.





Look at this beautiful carriage. Talk about romantic!




Speaking of romantic...we took the subway to Greenwich Village. There was a very romantic restaurant called The Place.





This was our last dinner in New York. We were tired but not ready to go home. We hopped back on the subway to meet one more special lady before we headed home.



We made it just before the sun set.


What a beautiful city. I truly did not want to leave.

Oh, how beautiful. I hope to be able to take my oldest daughter next year for her senior trip. I will have to pick your brain on where to stay and how to go about doing things.

Hey Brandee; Well color me jealous, I've always wanted to go this time of the year! Maybe someday. Hey your cousin is a hottie and I'm pretty sure I've seen him on Fox! BTW while I was looking at your photos I forgot you had snow on your blog and thought is was actually snowing. LOL! Yes, I have blonde hair!!!

I'm so glad you had a great time in New York. I love having an excuse to go to the city. And it's so pretty this time of year...Isn't the Christmas Tree amazing!! It's a great place and everyone should have the chance to see it at least once!

What a wonderful post and fun adventurous vacation for you.
It is great when you know someone to get the big tours:) The tree was gorgeous! The restaurant did look romantic.
Our newlyweds are heading there this week on a continuing education conference for her. I hope they enjoy it and have as much fun!

I loved your tour of a city I have never seen. Thanks for the beautiful pictures.
I have missed you...now I know why!

Over from Rue's Blog! Love your New York pictures...it's my favorite city! And I am a devoted watcher of FOX News...I knew exactly who you were with in those pictures, the best weather guy around:-)

Thanks for sharing your trip!

Brandee,

How nice to get away for a few days with your hubby and to an interesting city like NYC. We were there once for 2 days in Oct. about 5 years ago. I was disappointed in Rockefeller Center, for some reason I thought it was larger than it was. We did see Stacey London and Clinton Kelly from "What Not to Wear" tapping a show in the street. Central Park was awesome too.

Glad your back to blogging, missed you.

That looks like you had soo much fun-I would have loved the plays, but my husband would have DIED and GONE to heaven to visit the set of FOX news.... How cool!

Lisa said...

Wow! So many places in so few days! How cool, I'm so jealous (except for the FOX news studios).
The Balto pics are great!!

Ms. Tee said...

Wow, that's so neat that you got a personal tour!
My husband just went to a work-related function a few days ago, and Bill O'Reilly was the speaker. :)
I know that dog - it's Balto! We had to find it when we were in NYC for our youngest. And also the museum was in Night at the Museum.
Your photos are great!

Thanks so much for showing my city so wonderfully! I live in Brooklyn and I'm often in Manhattan blogging about it's sights and sounds. I have some Rockefeller Center tree photos up too --scroll down past the new grand baby who was just born a few days ago --lol!

jeanne @ Inspiring Ideas said...

You saw it at one of the best times! I LOVE Manhattan in December! All the giant displays, the Rockefeller tree, the Macy's windows ... so fun!

Krista said...

Brandee - Seing all those pics makes me want to go to NY for the holidays. We actually took our kids for Christmas one year and it was so much fun. We did all the stuff that you did. Isn't it just the neatest place? Was the food good at that restaurant? I bet it was, you could never go wrong in the food department. Fun, fun!!!!

I so want to go to NY - I've never been....maybe one day.

Connie said...

I love NY too and would love to go in December and see NY all decorated for Christmas. What a good looking cousin and you're looking pretty good yourself. Wasn't Mama Mia awesome??? We saw it in June when we were there. Glad you got away with hubby. Loved the Christmas card too! Connie

Sarah @ ThriftyDecorChick said...

Ohhh you are making me so anxious! NYC is my favorite place on Earth! But I haven't been since I was pregnant and I'm FINALLY going back in a few weeks. I cannot wait. It is the most magical place, especially at Christmas. You were lucky to go then. :)

Rambling Girl said...

Gosh...it was an amazing trip...One day I will get there...don't know when but will make it! Well I hope I get there....thanks for sharing this wonderful trip with me.

lucy said...

I went to New York a couple of years ago, and I have to say it was the MOST wonderful trip I have ever taken!! I absolutely LOVED it and did NOT want to come home either!!! I am going back hopefully this next year! It snowed 16 inches while we were there and it was oh, I don't know, about 10 degrees!!! Did not slow us down one bit!!! Happy New Year!!!
