New York! New York!

This was my first trip to New York City. Other than the wonderful friends I got to meet and the quilts I got to see here are a few other things that made this a very extraordinary vacation. (PS, this is a non quilty post)
The view every single morning from our window. That blue sky is almost as blue as the one in Oregon. It was cold but so beautiful. My dd and I both mentioned the trip would have been so different if it had been gray and rainy.

A memorial painted on the outside door of a fire station. It caught me off guard and moved me deeply.

A harbour cruise with a magnificent view of the city. We went around the tip of Manhattan and up the East River under the Brooklyn Bridge.

Wow!
A view of the city from our rooftop.
Our first night 53rd & 6th street cart. We were so hungry and it was so good! (we looked for this one specifically)
Little Italy. Mama Mia!!
Lots of food and spirits!

Being goofy with my daughter at Times Square.

  11. I'm so jealous of everyone who went to this wonderful quilt exhibition, I can hardly stand it, but I am enjoying all the fabulous photos that other quilt bloggers are sharing. I've only been to NYC once, and I loved it too! You and DD are so cute in that last photo -- there certainly is a strong family resemblance.

    I think if I could afford a nice hotel over the park, I could handle it, lol.

  20. Hi Lori,
    It sounds like you had a great time in the "BIG APPLE". I know I always have a great time when I go anywhere with my girls.

    It's hard not to love NYC, isn't it? Did you get to any fabric stores like "Mood" or "ME"s" Trims??

    BTW, your daughter is stunning.
