New York City

On Thursday morning, April 13 I set off for my trip to New York City to meet my husband and my son there. Karen from Lahser drove me to Connecticut for almost 11 hours, and we actually went through six states of the U.S. to get to Stamford. It was a long, but interesting journey from Michigan into Ohio, then Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and finally Connecticut.

April 15, 2006: Central Park on sunny and muggy Saturday morning. This huge park in he middle of the city was designed in the 1850s by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. Olmsted wanted the park to be a rural paradise within an urban area, a place for all - "rich and poor, young and old." Central Park is still much as he intended.

April 15, 2006: One of the best ways to get the larger picture of New York is to circle it in a boat. So, this is Manhattan, the center of American finance, advertising, art, theater, publishing, fashion - and much more. The borough of Manhattan is what most people think of when they think of New York, one of the most exciting cities in the world. New York' s other boroughs are Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. And thanks to Deborah, our excellent guide who lives just out of the Bronx, we were either strolling or driving through all of them within four days.
