New York City | Days 1 and 2

I love New York City.
I like to travel on an early morning flight. 
It makes for an incredibly long day, but it's worth it to, as The Boy Child said so eloquently, go back in time.
We flew out of London at 09.05 hrs and flew into New York City at 12.30 hrs.
On our itinerary yesterday afternoon were a horse and carriage ride around Central Park and visit to Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Plaza. The Boy Child was not happy at being out on the Observation Deck, but liked the lift with the glass roof.
Today turned out differently to what we'd originally planned, because our friends from Connecticut came in to town to surprise us. And a lovely surprise it was, too.
We managed to get tickets for the 9/11 Memorial this afternoon.
The Boy Child ate his first ever hot dog.
We rode the Staten Island Ferry on what turned out to be a cold and chilly day.
The Boy Child coped very well with over 6 hours on the go, as did my mum. 
Neither of them moaned.  
Well, TBC may have a little, but not enough to warrant a full-blown melt down.
As I type this, The Boy Child is fast asleep and has been from the moment he put himself to bed a little before 8pm.  Mum is sitting so quietly in the armchair, I suspect she may have nodded off.
New York, New York, the city that never sleeps.

It's a wonderful town, The Bronx is up, and the Battery down. The people ride in a hole in the ground. New York! New Yoooooooork! It's a wondeful Town!!

Sorry, bit of a singist moment there as I relived my favourite film. Sounds like you are having a fabulous time and TBC is doing well! As is Grandma.

Sounds like a very full day - we love getting an earlier flight for the same reason too.

Sounds like you've packed in a lot in just 2 days. Glad to hear the boy child is enjoying himself that's quite the smile on his face there.
