          he Bryant Park hotel ( looks innocent enough from the outside. It is, not surprisingly, right across the street from the Bryant Park. It has a simple awning with its name, which was decorated with lights because this was the Christmas season. Once inside the décor is fairly modern and warm. The staff is helpful, friendly and unflappable. The only hint you get that this might not be a completely G rated hotel is the preponderance of the color red in the decorating scheme. Once you get past a guard to get into the elevators, the elevator itself is bathed in red light. It has a bit of a bordello feel....but in a good way.

          Once entering the room, we found it to be clean and tasteful, with a ginormous bathroom. What seemed a bit odd to begin with was that, given the luxury of the rest of the room, there was absolutely NO view from the windows. On one side there was a few of a narrow alley and two brick walls. On the other side there was a view of one brick wall. We pondered this a bit before Julien had to go off to work. Once he had left, I discovered the reason for no view. There, tucked neatly in front of the classes on top of our exorbitantly stocked mini bar was an envelope. On the envelope were the worlds "Pleasure Chest". Really? Of course this was too fascinating to leave until later, so I immediately opened it. Inside a unique array of adult "toys" were offered for purchase. And there seemed to be something for everyone...for her...for him....for them...even for a few with slightly darker dreams. Aha. The reason for the lack of a view, and the enormous bathtub, comes clear. You aren't supposed to be looking at much of anything outside your hotel room. The room is designed to furnish all your entertainment needs, whether they fall into the food, drink, movie or "other" category. I will stress that this was all done quite tastefully. I would never consider this an "X" rated hotel. It was simply a strong "R". As it is located right off of Fifth Avenue, it is clearly designed for business men who have decided to take their wives, or significant others, or "friends", to the city with them. It is a great lovers hotel. And voila. When Julien got home from the office that night, we had a good time looking through the Pleasure Chest booklet. And while we didn't purchase anything, it was a lot of fun trying to figure out what everything was supposed to be for. So it provided us with laughs as well as a wonderful place for a lovers getaway.

          Just when we thought that we had dodged the entire storm. Mom and I were less than 10 minutes from our hotel- 8 minutes to be exact. The snow came quickly and hit hard. While we waited in Malba, Queens, we listened to music and checked on flight information. At this time, we were planning on my flight still departing at 3:55pm on Tuesday from JFK. It took us over an hour to travel those 8 minutes, mostly because we had to merge from four lanes into three, then two, then one.  It ...

          ... TV :-) OK, so not so much a relaxing night!! Poor Sammy used the toilet and he started calling out to me and when I went in there to see what he needed the toilet was filling up and overflowed all over the floor...... Where's a plumber when you need one!!!..... I rang reception who said they'd send someone up straight away....... After about half an hour a maintenance man arrived, the toilet had gone back down, but not before running all over the bathroom floor and escaping ...

          ... a cute little cafe on the way to send off my parcel, so we stopped there for brunch on the way back. It was quite nice, and satisfied the hunger for the moment. We then got on the subway and headed down to the infamous Madison Square Garden. We booked our tour, got our behind-the-scenes passes, and got our guided tour of the great building.

          We only had a small group, which made it quite easy - there was even a couple from Perth ...

          Today we enjoyed doing The Circleline Tour which is a two and a half hour trip around the whole of Manhattan. This was the trip Omi, Jack and I had done on our last trip to New York and it was equally enjoyable. Our next adventure was walking The Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn to Manhattan, which had a few photo opportunities let's say. Finished up at a bar for a well earned ...

I would have easily stayed home but Linda was keen and I am so glad that I decided to go as the lights were fabulous and the bus went to Brooklyn so we could see the skyline of Downtown Manhattan. Pizza again for dinner - we all agreed it was better than last nights. In bed by ...
