- Conservatory of Flowers in Central Park
- Museum of the City of New York
- Metropolitan Museum of Art
- And the rest of the Uptown NYC route
We even saw the Koons sculptures on the roof top garden of the museum. She did like the flowers in the park and I think it helped that we packed snacks and had a mini picnic at the park in between trips to the museums. She also liked the show at the planetarium that was narrated by Robert Redford at the Museum of Natural History, where they filmed the movie, "Night at the Museum" with Ben Stiller.
We arrived at the museum before it opened so we had time to play "King of the Hill" across the street at Central Park.
We also had our share of "wild animals" there were lots of squirrels and every time I took a picture, the squirrel looked RIGHT AT ME(!!!) and it had those "Scary Eyes" that glowed.
Today, we went downtown and went to:
- Empire State Building
- St. Paul's Chapel
- Ground Zero
- Chinatown (dim sum...yum)
- Rockefeller Center
- NBC Studios
So, here we are "breaking the law" again...the sign says..."Tourists are not permitted beyond this point"
Then, since we had a coupon to Planet Hollywood, we brought mom to it for dinner, but I think it was a little too loud with it's Pop music and video screens. Definitely for the younger crowd and with a "birthday" happening every few minutes, it became a little irritating even to me and Betty. I think we satisfied her with dim sum earlier and that helped soften the blow. Oh, and seeing her favorite Dancing with the Stars dancer, Mario Lopez, was the cherry on top!
