New York (December 2006)  
Posted by Richard on Thursday 4th January 2007 at 10:28 PM

To celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniverary we set off for a two week trip to New York, Montreal and Ottawa.

New York was our first port of call and a first for us all. If there is a next time, I have a feeling that Laura and I might choose to 'travel lighter'!

The Circle Line ferry must be the greatest way to view the Manhattan skyline - see how many almost identical photos you can take! Click here to view this Page



Empire State Building   
Posted by Richard on Thursday 4th January 2007 at 10:37 PM

Our second full day took us three blocks down 34th Street to the Empire State Building. I wish we'd taken the advice from the Rough Guide and skipped the 'New York SKYRIDE', but the 320m ride to the 86th floor observatory is definitely worth the bucks! (You can get even higher, up to the 102nd floor, but I think you may need oxygen for this). Click here to view this Page



Times Square / Rockefeller Center

High on Laura's wishlist for the trip to New York was ice skating at the Rockefeller Center. So not wishing to disappoint, we headed up to Rockefeller Plaza, via Times Square. Click here to view this Page



American Museum of Natural History / Central Park   
Posted by Richard on Thursday 4th January 2007 at 10:39 PM

Our last full day, gave us our one and only experience of the New York subway. First (and last) stop was the American Museum of Natural History. We were so keen, we arrived half an hour before the museum opened. This gave us the opportunity to watch about 30 'takes' as some TV presenter invited his audience to join him in the museum. Click here to view this Page
