Loving our time in New York City

What a fascinating place this "City That Never Sleeps" is.  We have done pretty well getting familiar with the subway, and we've walked miles and miles, but that is good for us.  Yesterday we walked through Greenwich Village, Chinatown, Little Italy, SoHo and other little neighborhoods I can't remember.  We really enjoyed that.  We got confused on the subway issue with that excursion, but now that it's over, we know what we should have done.

This morning our son and his family arrived, and they will be here through Sunday.  Our DGD just loves the program "Cake Boss," and was really wanting to go to Hoboken, NJ to Carlo's Bake Shop, which is featured in Cake Boss.  I did some research and figured out how we could get there, so we did that.  The lines to get in are pretty unbelievable.  I think we waited a total of about an hour and a half - part of it outside and part inside.  It's a lovely day, so it wasn't bad.  We spent more than we should have and got more sweets than we should have, but what good treats we indulged in.

And last but not least, this is Bryant Park, which is a delightful oasis in the middle of a very, very busy metropolis.  There were many people here enjoying the sunshine, with some playing chess or pingpong, and others enjoying their lunch.
