Vacation in New York - Fri, 4 Sep 2009

Sorry, but the Beta was delayed by a much needed 8 day family vacation to New York City.


I’ve always been intrigued by tall buildings. My neck still hurts from looking up all the time. My city of Winnipeg has 700,000 people, so it’s not small. Our tallest buildings are about 30 stories and 400 feet tall. But the Doubletree Hotel at Times Square where we were staying was 43 stories and 470 feet tall - and it is listed as the 180′th tallest building in New York!

The cabs are something else. All yellow and 80% of the traffic. A $12 cab ride is like an amusement park ride reaching speeds of 60 mph and g-forces of a jet airplane. Every block has a Starbucks and a McDonalds.

Museums, Shopping, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Central Park, Broadway Shows, Wow!

We had a great time.
