Day 1519: A partial "I♥NY" itinereary!

"Money", I phone photo at Ray's Pizza, NYC

I am more tired than I have ever been in my life.
Moving in slow motion & thinking even slower.
But, I wouldn't change a second of our whirlwind 5 day trip.

I just took time to start a log of what we fit in to our 5 days.
Earlier photos & quick blog info here:
 • Day 1516,  Day 1517Day 1515  Day 1513  • Day 1512
 I usually journal, but on this trip, there was no time.

Here's why:
Wednesday 9/14: We arrived JFK - NY at 10:45PM
got luggage, located Uber van, 1 hour drive to hotel. 

Checked in, dropped bags in room & started walking @ 12:15 AM
ending up at at Ray Pizza with other NYC night-owls.
The actual "Ray" was there overseeing him employees. 
WW said he looked like he hadn't slept in days.
We agreed. Pizza & chicken wings at 1:30 AM.
We closed the joint! (NY vernacular)
Back to the hotel at 2:25 AM.

Thursday 9/15: Up & at-tum, no sleeping in for this crowd!
Each day started with "the 2" bringing us hot tea from Starbucks.
They knew our motors were slower to start.
We walked from Midtown to Times Square to ...

pick up our reserved 2 day Big Bus passes.

The girls arranged for a 2 day on & off pass which was terrific!
On the top deck we really saw NYC & the great architecture.
The tour guides were terrific. We got off and walked  ...

and walked ...

and walked through the financial district & to Battery Park.

We had lunch @ Battery Garden Restaurant near Lady Liberty.

This is only half of the first day, with more to follow.
So many photos to share, most too good not too.
