... thinking bright and wise things about the world at large. I watched Livvy grapple with frustration and emerge triumphant, as on the awesome ropes course in South Dakota, and not so triumphant, as in the Mazda, on the last night, as she told us that the whole thing had been a disaster. And I learned that when you go on a disaster of a vacation, what you want with you is a disaster planner. Someone who keeps cool under pressure, who turns ...
... the sky tram, The Statue Of Liberty by cruise vessel, Brooklyn botanical gardens in all its glory and finally Grand Central Station, all add to the calaedescope of experiences.I have to say we did little of the shopping experience that most women delight in. Being our first trip we concentrated on gaining an overall impression of the city and life of people in this mega city.It seemed to me that Manhattan is very high density, grand, upmarket, touristy and ...
... to eat from the all-you-can-eat buffet. We both liked the food (but not as much as we did on the Pearl).
While leaving the Port, we passed the Statue of Liberty. It was neat to see this attraction but both noted that it looks a lot smaller in person than it does in the movies.
We have an inside stateroom at the front of the boat on level 9 for this trip.
... the nicest piece of art was in the entrance- but it spent a couple of hours indoors. The museum was located opposite the main lake in Central Park, so we navigated our way over the puddles for a picture. The park was empty (as expected). By this time, my suede boots were (more) and soaked through to my socks. This meant another trip to H&M for some waterproof shoes and new socks. Oops. With dry feet, we had a snack at a Mexican café and the headed to Harlem for lunch. So, ...

Matt had to do some work on Sunday so I headed in to Manhattan to pick up my prints so I can start painting this week. Spring is supposed to start this week but with snow this past weekend we’re not holding our breath! At least we’re heading for Miami mid-April! Matt has a work function so I’m going along and Matt’s taking a day off and we’ll stay for the weekend. Ready for some serious sun ...

I was looking for hotels for almost 9 months before our trip.
I decided on Aloft Brooklyn because it was cheaper than all of the hotels I saw in Manhattan (considering the advance in reservation).
When we arrived, they received us in the lobby and explained to us all of the details. We went to our room and it was awesome. The view of DeKalb Market and Long Island University was great.
The room had a King size bed and was really good.
I would definitely recommend this hotel, it is excellent, and it is really closed to anywhere. There are 5 different subway stations in the area and the lines that go through them can take you anywhere in NY with no more than 1 exchange per route.
As far as the neighborhood, it has a lot of discount stores, a big Macy's, Foot Locker, Modell's, and lots of places to eat and indulge yourself with some of the original old school barbershops or beauty saloons.
