We're in NYC!

We had an uneventful trip to NY, with a bit of a delay in Chicago.  We thought we weren't going to be able to make it to the post rehearsal gathering for our nephew's wedding, but despite arriving a bit late, we made it!

Our small, one bedroom condo apartment was all that it advertised.  Dale's brother turned us on to VRBO, Vacation Rentals by Owner, and we were able to get a good deal for a week.  The owner was great, setting us up with a car service for the ride from LaGuardia to the condo.  Being unaccustomed to taxis and other public transportation it was nice to have that taken care of.

The afternoon of the wedding we went out and tackled the subway system.  We had planned to do some sightseeing, but after a late night, and some late sleepers, we didn't have a whole lot of time.  

We took the subway into Manhattan, walked a big rectangle taking in the southeast corner of Central Park.  I couldn't resist taking a picture of the trees growing in the corner of this high rise.  Discovered it was Trump Tower when we walked by the front.  Did a little shopping at the Lindt Chocolate store.  Lots of flavors besides the usual varieties available at the grocery store.  We had to head back to the condo and get ready to be picked up for the wedding.
