New York, Part 1

We are back from NYC!

We packed a lot into the three days we were there. We drove up Saturday, and once we were settled in the hotel room, we headed off to a hockey game.
We took the train into Long Island. It was very confusing to say the least. Figuring out which track, and which train to take was hard, but we made it there.
The game was really fun. Clarke has wanted to go to a NHL game since his childhood, and the New York Islanders were one of his favorite teams.
Us at the game. (We are getting good at taking pictures of ourselves!)

We got back late Saturday night, and had a late start Sunday heading into Manhattan. The first thing on our itinerary........
Broadway!! Clarke's boss got us amazing seats (5th row center, we were soo close). I have always loved the music in this show, so I was very excited when I found out he got us tickets. It was such a great musical, I absolutely loved it!
After the show we walked around Times Square for a bit. Then headed to dinner.
We ate at Sardi's, which was really good. Someone had recommended this place to us, and we were glad we went. The atmosphere was really neat, they had caricatures of famous people everywhere.
Afterwards we headed over to the Rockefeller Center. We really wanted to see it decorated for Christmastime. It was really crowded, so we didn't stay long, but I'm glad we got to see it.

We ended the night by walking up Fifth Avenue, enjoying all the window displays. They were amazing, my pictures don't do them justice.
My favorite was Saks Fifth Avenue. They moved, reminded me of something you would see at Disney World.

We crashed at our hotel, got a good nights sleep, and i'll post the rest tomorrow!
