NYC - July 2013

I was lucky enough to take some time off of work to show my little brother (he's 18!!) around NYC in July. We had a blast and did and saw EVVVVVVERYTHING! I was bound and determined to make sure he couldn't say "well, I really wanted to see this, but Jamie didn't take me or we didn't have time to". No sir-ee, bob! Not gonna happen. :) And it didn't.
Day 1: Times Square

Gotta love the billboards!

And look who we ran into! Marty Brown and his wife, from America's Got Talent. They were filming at Radio City Music Hall that week we were there! Ran into the Brown's TWICE. Crazy!

Rockafellar Center:

Day 2: Columbia University, doesn't he look like he fits in there?! :)

WTC Memorial Building:

Her Majesty, the Statue of Liberty:

Day 3: Yankee Stadium! Saw Jeter drive a homer his first at-bat and witnessed Matsui's retirement pre-game! What a day!

Day 4: Central Park:

And of course, Strawberry Fields:

Wall Street & the NYSE:

Times Square at dusk:

Day 5: Views from the Empire State Building
This one is looking over Downtown Manhattan:

Looking over New Jersey:

Looking up North at Central Park:

The Empire State Building

Used the Subway a ton! What a lifesaver!

NYU: New York University

We also saw Grand Central Station, the Chrysler Building, visited some of my friends at Barclay's Capital and S&P, walked an average of 9 miles each day and just went and did and ate and saw and had a blast!

At the end, Jaace said "I think I saw more things on this trip than I have in my whole life". It made me smile.
