For 49 years I've enjoyed warm summer days for my birthday. Well not this year. My god. -13 overnight in NYC and freezing conditions as a beautiful sunny day dawned.
Mardi got me a couple of lovely gifts, that will come in handy, a scarf and a pair of gloves. She also got me some t shirts for back in Australia and some fragrance samples.

Hop on hop off bus tour through the down town. Windy and cold weather - 5 degrees. The conductor was very informative, gave the history of each place visited. Over all visited 22 places in the ride.

Our room upgrade was well worth the extra and we have a lounge, kitchenette and balcony which from the 22nd floor gives us a fantastic view from West to East Manhattan. You can just see the Hudson River to the left and across to the East River the other way. MISSION: Jump on the Subway at Penn Station down ...
