New York, New York

 "In New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of-There is nothing you can't do, now you're in New York.  These streets will make you feel brand new, big lights will inspire you, let's hear it for NewYork, New York, New York."
Alicia Keyes- Lyrics from Empire State of Mind

New York City is the largest city in the United States with a population of more than 8 million people. There is no other place like it, in the world.
Words are not necessary when describing our experience. The photos tell the story.




                                

                                                    





Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Velva.... you lucky gal! Oh, to be in New York during Thanksgiving is a grand experience. Give my regards to Broadway!

ps: If you can, go over to West 77th & Central Park West @ the Natural History Museum on Wednesday evening and watch them blow-up the Macy's Day Parade balloons. It is something really special! Have fun...

Happy Thanksgiving to you! I would love to visit NYC some day! Love your photos!

Chef E said...

There are so many great places to eat there, and places to see, you have to go back, and back, and back...you get my drift!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and the family!

Wow!! That's one awesome corned beef sandwich!! Looks like a wonderful time. I've never been to NYC, but I've always wanted to go. Looking forward to hearing more about your trip :D

Lynn said...

What fun you must be having! But now I'm worried about your poor little eggs at home with no one to cook/eat them. Did you figure out how to use them up? I wonder if you can freeze some to bake with later?

Chow and Chatter said...

Love all the photos you posted. Wow, you had a great time!

I responded to you about the potato ricer - go check out Browns Home Kitchen on Capital Circle. They have several kinds. I bought the $35 model. Works great.

Kitchen Butterfly said...

Funny...we both start our posts today with songs....Lovely. NYC makes my heart...throb! If you want a potato ricer...check Ikea. I got mine for about 3 euros....though I don't know what Brown's version looks like!

I love this post. (I am loving a lot of posts tonight...) I actually have some tears in my eyes because I miss New York. Not that I grew up there or anything like that. I just enjoyed all my trips there. Thank you so much for all the wonderful pictures. They are like vignettes. Happy Thanksgiving, Ms. Velva!

Joanne said...

I couldn't have written this any better myself. I love the pictures and that song. Living in New York is like a dream for me. It is the city that I was and always will be meant to be in. Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks for putting a smile on my face this morning.

Hi Velva, You've taken some beautiful pics of NY. I lived in Manhattan for 20 years and words cannot describe the excitement and energy that surrounds the city. Kooks like you had a great time. You have a lovely blog and I look forward to exploring it.
Thanks for stopping by my blog! Happy Holidays!

Wow Nice post. It makes me remember all my sweet memories when i had been to New York. One more unforgettable moment in New York for me is the Eretz Kosher Restaurant, where i enjoyed all the recipes very much.
