We recently took a trip to New York City and had a wonderful time! There truly is something going on there at all hours of the day or night! Trip highlights include great theater, great food, great sightseeing and great shopping! Doesn’t that sound like a winning formula?
As for theater, we saw “Jersey Boys” and “Anything Goes.” They are both musicals and were outstanding performances! “Jersey Boys” is about the evolution of the group, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, and featured their music. “Anything Goes” is a revival of Cole Porter’s romantic comedy. It takes place aboard an ocean-liner during the 1930’s. The costumes, dancing and music from that era are fabulous.
When it comes to restaurants, it is difficult to find a bad one in New York City! We had several unforgettable meals. “Victor’s Cafe” serves incredible Cuban food, that combined with the music and the ambiance transports you to what it must have been like in Old Havana. “The Russian Tea Room” is elegantly decorated in gold and red and serves delicious Russian cuisine that includes Chicken Kiev and Boeuf a la Stroganoff. The Borscht was the best that I have ever eaten.
Highlights in sightseeing were the 9/11 Memorial, Top of the Rock, the Museum of Modern Art, Central Park, Chinatown and Little Italy.
As for shopping, a New York City staple that we do not have in Texas is Bloomingdale’s on 59th Street! I managed to do some major damage there and in many of the individual shops along Fifth Avenue.
This is a vacation that is on the expensive side, but worth every penny!
