Travel Blogs from Tarrytown
Part of Mom's birthday present. Mom, Dad, Jenn and I went to the game. Yankees played the Mariners and lost 1-0. Stayed in Tarrytown last night then took the train in to the stadium. This was Mom's first trip to the new stadium. We had a great time even though the temps were above 90.
... another favourite picnic spot for office workers and families. Andrew and I both commented on the importance parks are to New Yorkers and space is such a premium, things like a balcony or a yard are almost unheard of, so they rely on the parks for their outdoor activities. We just mooched along at our own pace till we found cute spot for lunch. Just another great day in New York.
More great days ahead in next blog...

We were here in 1977 for the Stampede, so we walk through them, looking for familiar sights, but, apart from the hill above it where we parked our car, and the stage where the night entertainment spectacle took place, it is unrecognisable. The Calgary Stampede is a major corporation now, with major pavilions and grandstands.
... is just a chip and a putt from Central Park. So early tomorrow morning, I will hang a left and go around Central Park. Things I still really really have to see is Juilliard, the Chrysler Building up close, Macy's window displays, Madison Square Garden, Brooklyn if there's time, Harlem and if there are any other must sees that you think I must see (or eat) then let me know. After tonight I only have one day and one night left but if its do-able, I'll do it. Till tomorrow... ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
A good hotel location to stay the night and catch the train to a Yankees game. Rooms could use a little updating and the beds weren't the most comfortable. Overall good rate and location. They do offer a shuttle service to the train station.
