Timehop reminds me that three years ago we were in New York City. I used to go to NYC every year for a week in the summer while my wife was there for work. I would take he bus up(she flew because she’s fancy like that) and spend the day roaming the city while she was at work. I did a random walkabout of each of the boroughs. It was great. Once my daughter was older, she wanted to see the city, so we went back up with her. The trip three years ago was the first time our son joined us.
This trip was prompted by our ability to get tickets to see Hamilton. I was at work one day when I got the email that another round of tickets were open. I called my wife who was at her mom’s house so he could buy them since I was at work. She couldn’t get the wifi there to cooperate so I had to try to secure them while hoping no one asked me a question. We only bough three tickets because my wife didn’t think our son would care enough about Hamilton to go. She also decided if he did want to to go, she would be OK with seeing another show. Of course, he wanted to go, so she saw Miss Saigon while we saw Hamilton.
We stayed at the Chelsea Savoy as we have the last few times we have been. We found street parking across the street from the hotel. We walked the High Line. We went to Hamilton. We had a good time.
My brother and his family has talked about coming to visit this year so I could be their NYC tour guide. We all know how that worked out.
I can’t wait until I can go back and experience the city again.
