We Loove New York, Part 7!

Are you getting tired of the New York entries? We’re reaching the end, I promise! Every child’s fantasy! Matt was intrigued by the amazing LOTR collector’s items Separated at birth. An.. an entire room of Harry Potter!  I didn’t know that stuffed frogs were considered a Quality Quidditch Supply, however! We’re PC People (no offense… read more »

We Looove New York, Part 6!

This is a quickie post from an exhibit at the Museum of Natural History.  Being gigantic nerds, that place was pretty much our mecca. There was a live butterfly exhibit in a small enclosed area.  The interior of the butterfly room was roughly 400 degrees and 200% humidity. It made me homesick.. just like the… read more »

We Looove New York, Part 5!

The next day we took a (slightly questionable) subway ride to The Bronx to visit the zoo. It was the third day of the off-season and we pretty much had the place to ourselves.  Some of the exhibits had been closed off or “winterized” but there was still a lot to see. I don’t have… read more »

NYC Pics of the Day

It’s always been a dream of mine to visit Rockefeller Center near the holidays and watch the ice skaters. We walked over from our hotel at night and it was just as magical as I’d expected! This is Jefferson Market Courthouse in Greenwich Village – voted 5th most beautiful building in the country. I wanted… read more »

NYC – Day 2 POTD

We took a gillion photos today, and it was nearly impossible to narrow it down to just one or two to share with everyone tonight. We have completely fallen in love with this city, and have decided that if we ever win the lottery, we’re moving to a 5th Avenue penthouse. This first photo was… read more »
