NYC June 2005

June 24-27, Barb, the girls, and I went to New York City, with Barb's parents, to see Matt sing at Carnegie Hall with the Atlanta Boy Choir.

Friday June 24

We arrived at La Guardia and took a shuttle to our hotel, the Hotel Carter at Times Square–perhaps the dirtiest, oldest, most mismanaged hotel Barb or I had ever been to. But the location was terrific. We took a walk up to Rockefeller Center and back to Times Square.

Saturday June 25

It was going to be a really hot day, so we left early in the morning to go to the Statue of Libery and Ellis Island.

That night, we went to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang which was right next door to our hotel.

Sunday June 26

We went to St. Patrick's Cathedral for mass, on a hot day when their water cooler was broken. I took Jenny out after communion to get some water. We ate at Ruby Foo's at Times Square for lunch, then went to Carnegie Hall where we met the mother of our friend, Shayna Steinfeld.

We got to see Matt as they were leaving Carnegie Hall and getting on their bus. The girls were his "groupies" that didn't want him to go.

Afterward, we had dinner at Tony's (Italian) at Times Square, then took a carriage ride around Central Park.

Monday June 27

Grandma and Grandpa left early on Monday, so we went to the Toys R Us at Times Square on our own, and rode the giant indoor ferris wheel.

Our flight was almost two hours late leaving La Guardia, so we finally got in around 9 pm.
