From the Windy City to the Big Apple: Saturday Afternoon and Evening

Let's see...where did I leave off? Oh yes, with lunch. After lunch we walked around for a bit. In looking at my pictures, I see that I took a lot of photos of churches. I took several of St. Malachy's.

And St. Patrick's Cathedral.

Sadly, my indoor photos didn't turn out well, even though the camera was on the correct setting.

And two whose names I do not know.

We also saw Radio City Music Hall during our long, long walk.

And our long, long walk ended at Central Park. I was surprised by how pretty and how big Central Park is. For some reason, in my mind Central Park was about the size of a football field, flat, surrounded by trees, with a few benches scattered here and there. That was way, way off! Instead, it's quite large, very lush and green, and has nice paths to walk through the park. Thank goodness for the water and ice cream vendors. By this time we were ready to rest on a large rock with a cool refreshment.

We took a cab back to our hotel (thank goodness, because I'd gotten a blister from all the walking!) and got ready for our evening out. We ate dinner at a small Italian restaurant called Da Mario. The food was wonderful and the murals on the walls were very quaint.

Then it was off to see Phantom of the Opera at Majestic Theatre. I'd never seen it and it was fantastic.

I'll tell you about Sunday tomorrow. Have a safe and happy 4th of July!

I am so glad you enjoyed your trip to NYC. I love it also. Did you take a Carriage Ride in the Park?
Have a great summer.
