A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words
New York in June - Through The Lens
by Lina Rehal
In June of 2014, my husband and I traveled from Boston to New York City by train. It was my first trip to “The Big Apple” and the first time I had ever traveled by train. It was a lot to experience in three days. We chose sights we wanted to see ahead of time and crammed in as much as possible. The double-decker tour bus enabled us to pass through neighborhoods we would not have had time to visit.
View from Battery Park This lady needs no introduction
First on our sight-seeing agenda, was the Statue of Liberty. We rode the double-decker bus to Battery Park where we went through security and waited to board the ferry to Liberty Island. We didn’t go up inside the statue. Being there and seeing this historic sight was a moving experience. I’m glad we made the time for this one.
Doing the tourist thing
Times Square – taken from our hotel room
We had a great view of Times Square from our room. This is where the Good Morning America Show is broadcast every day. Loved watching the people below.
Don’t Tell Mama
We had so much fun here, that we went twice. They have a piano bar. The talented staff entertains and the audience can participate. The bartenders and waitresses also perform in theaters in off Broadway shows. It’s in the heart of Restaurant Row.
A gorgeous June day in Central Park
Central Park was our favorite place. We went on a carriage ride, saw the Carousel and stopped at the new Tavern on the Green. From there, we walked along 5th Avenue and went to the Top of the Rock for a spectacular view of the city from their observation deck.
Rockefeller Center Radio City Music Hall
