NYC with Lindy - part 2

Another couple fun days in New York!

Wandering around Central Park - my favorite statue (Balto the sled dog):

Hans Christian Andersen:

A really nice photo of Alice and Lindy:

Across the lawn looking south toward the city:


They are setting up the stage for a summer of Shakespeare:

Bow Bridge after walking through The Rambles for the first time (I like it!):

Serene morning music:

It seemed like a good time to finally rent a boat:

Lindy showing us how it's done:

Another view of the skyline:

More turtles!

An afternoon at the Natural History Museum:

Closer-up encounter with Teddy:

See #3:

Lincoln Center, wandering through after watching a showing of the movie "Imagine" about John Lennon:

Not your normal college student version of ramen noodles - but still very good  :)

We went to Flushing Meadows to check out the various sights and museums, starting with the NY Hall of Science (which was interesting even though it was overrun with super-excitable school kids).  How to play Plinko (for that day when I get on The Price Is Right):

A quieter spot nearby:

Lindy's "life imitates art" pose - good one!

One of the World's Fair locations - it's the 50th and 75th anniversary of two NYC World's Fairs:

A time capsule - to be opened in 5000 years!?

We were enchanted with a tour of Louis Armstrong's house - totally worth a visit if you are ever in the area.


Lindy wanted to see the show called "Once" and it was an excellent pick.  Fun music, actors playing instruments onstage, all around delightful.

I think we wore John out:

It was a bit of a whirlwind tour, but we always enjoy a few days in the Big Apple!
