Sisterchicks in New York City....Day 1
Here's the beginning of my posts about New York City!
I am overwhelmed thinking about trying to record each & every detail, and know I will leave out way too many, but I will try to do the trip justice.
And so we begin:

I met Cindy around 4:30 in the parking lot of a (closed) Starbucks and picked her up, then we headed to the airport. Our flight was around 7:00 a.m. We were tired but excited to begin our NYC adventure.
Melissa & Mary Beth arrived in NY about 8:30 ET, with Cindy & I arriving about 11:30. We went straight to the hotel in a cab (interesting adventure) and they met us in the lobby. Screams & hugs for all!
We got our stuff in our hotel room then we headed out to Little Italy to find Lombardi's for a late lunch. We began learning how to navigate the subway system which is really a lot of fun if you know what you're doing.
We enjoyed our 1st meal in NYC at Lombardi's. Since it was a late lunch, the pizzas were large, and we had a dinner reservation later, we opted to share 1 which worked out well throughout our trip..sharing meals. (Leaves more room for desserts later!) :)
Times Square is a fun place to explore....
China Town....did a little "shopping" while there. ;) It is a neat area to explore, lots of interesting people & things to see.
The flowers & trees in NY were so beautiful! I think this was near Washington Square & Greenwich Village?? I'd like to go back to this area.
Our dinner reservations that night were at MESA GRILL, Bobby Flay's restaurant. I found it to be very yummy! There are pictures of pretty much every food we ate the whole time we were there, but I think one of the BEST things we had there was the Mushroom Quesadilla. It was so FULL of flavor. I'm not a huge "eat a mushroom" kind of a person, but it was soooo good, and it had the fried egg on top. Yum! This is a NM tradition that had to grow on me over time...putting fried eggs on tops of enchiladas, etc.....but it has, and this was really good.
M&M's World in Times Square is so neat!
The Disney Store was huge & neat.
The Hershey store...really cool!
Times Square at night is something else....anytime really!
Junior's......you must try it. I'm just sayin'.......
