Visit to New York City, July 4-7, 2013
Time to get out of town: We decided to visit the Big Apple to check out the fireworks and see a few shows over the holiday weekend. We stayed in New Jersey where we had a great view of the Macy's fireworks extravaganza.
Even though we squinted really hard, we still couldn't see either Usher or Cher. :-(
Hard to capture the impressions of the fireworks, but here are a few pics.
The fireworks show was amazing with four separate yet completely synchronized shows on the west side of Manhattan on the Hudson. There were many different colors and shapes, and I suspect this one was packaged by the good people at Planet Hollywood....
Next am, need to start the day with some Dunkin Donuts.
Then off to Times Square to score some theater tickets.
Walk through Central Park, stopping for a rest.
This fountain, which is been in many movies, is now in our picture collection!
There was an area near the fountain with an interesting juxtaposition of an opera singer, classical music and architecture, and the haunting echoes of the string instruments
...and the smell of urine.
Friday matinee of Annie.
Great show, but it took some effort to look over the people continuously texting in front us.
