It’s amazing how many things you can see and do in a New York minute. Last week, my mom and I enjoyed 48 hours of them, during which we saw a Broadway show (naturally), munched giant deli sandwiches, strolled through Central Park, toured the Wall Street Journal, visited Ground Zero, enjoyed the new Through the Looking Glass and Van Gogh exhibits at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, had dinner at an Iron Chef’s restaurant, caught a little live music, and saw my son Charlie in action during a taping of the Meredith Vieira Show.
At least two of those outings require their own posts.
Consider this the overview, in which we celebrate Manhattan and all its cheesecakey glory.
My favorite New York moments are the quiet ones — the St. Patrick’s Cathedral candle, the early morning jog through a yawning zoo, the late night photo walk, the Winslow Homer painting, toy sailboats on a pond.
My favorite New York moments are also the loud ones — the Times Square hawkers, Broadway musicals, food carts, street musicians, animated cab drivers.
The best of my favorite New York moments happened at 6:30 Tuesday evening, when we caught site of Charlie ambling through a crowded Rock Center Café on his way to meet us.
We made the most of our 48 hours in New York and our brief visit with Charlie.
Enjoy these pictures of our quick trip through the city that never sleeps.
