NYC - Day 4

On this day, Curtis woke up feeling sick.  This was a real bummer because it seems like one of us always ends up getting sick whenever we travel.  We took it easy in the morning and then we went to the NBC Studios tour!
We weren't allowed to take pictures on the tour, so we snapped some shots of both of us holding our tickets.
We got to see Dr. Oz's set, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon's set and the Saturday Night Live set!  It was pretty cool and probably one of our favorite parts of the trip!

We decided to try to get discounted Broadways tickets through TKTS.  While I waited in the long line, Curtis was sweet and got us pizza from a place called Patzeria's Pizza.  Unfortunately, we didn't realize how expensive the Broadway tickets would be, so after we heard the how much the prices of the top 3 shows that we wanted to see, we left empty-handed.  I was pretty disappointed about it so I think we're planning on trying to see Wicked when it comes to Jacksonville in January of 2012.  
Before we went to NYC, I got a deal through LivingSocials for a wine class at a restaurant called Giorgio's.  It was a lot of fun to try the different types of wine.
Lambrusco was my favorite!  It was fizzy.
Curtis is a big fan of Seinfeld, so we planned on going to a well-known restaurant that the tv show references called the Original Soup Man.  This is the place where the man always would say "No Soup For You!"
The soup was pretty delicious!  Curtis got the seafood bisque soup and I got tomato basil soup.  They even give you fruit and an amazing chocolate candy with every soup order!
Next up, we went to the "Top of the Rock."  We tried to get there before so that we could see the cityscape before the sun went down.
The view was amazing!
There's the Empire State Building!
Of course, Curtis made a funny face to show our amazement!
...and so did I!
We even got a picture together with the Empire State Building between us.
As it got darker, we were able to see all the lights.
That big batch in the middle of the city is Central Park.
I love the way we can see a little bit of the sunset in this picture.  Another fun-filled day in NYC. :)

  1. Cool Margaret, looks like you both had a great time and I had a great time looking at all the pictures. Good talking with you this morning. I spent all day cleaning, the sad part is the girls will never know how many boxes we had to pack and move out of there before they arrived. They are nice girls and we are praying to be a blessing to them. So please pray I keep a Christ like perspective and purpose with them and they will always feel Christ presence here.Love ya, Mrs. W.
