ROW NYC Hotel.  700 8th Avenue, New York, NY.  Perfect location!!!  TIMES SQUARE!!!  AMAZING!!!  AMAZING GRACE!!! (GO TEAM GRACE!!!  Grace McCullough is a WINNER!!!  She was 1 of the 5 models chosen during the recent Wet Seal model search, 2014!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! )  Sorry.  I got distracted!!!

So, the Row NYC is where we stayed (slept) during tour in the Big Apple.  Very nice hotel.  Professional employees.  GO TEAM ROW NYC!!!  GREAT location!!!  We were RIGHT THERE!!!  We could get ANYWHERE… and EVERYWHERE… from RIGHT  THERE!!!  And… WE DID!!!  We walked. Rode on buses.  Walked more.  Rode in a boat.  Walked  more, yet.  Rode the subway.  And you guessed it… “WALKED EVEN MORE”!!!  Boy, people are always trying to hurry, Hurry, HURRY -up and go, Go, GO!!!  People, people, and MORE PEOPLE  virtually everywhere, virtually ALL THE TIME!!!  MORNING, NOON, AND NIGHT!!!

There were NYPD officials… ALL OVER… EVERYWHERE!!!  I never, REALLY, felt scared.  Period. GO TEAM NYPD!!!  We heard and viewed rescue squads racing…in start and stop mode… through the traffic of automobiles AND pedestrians!!!  GO TEAM NY EMS!!!  Bouncers outside clubs.  GO BOUNCERS!!!  Chauffeurs beside their limo’s.  GO CHAUFFEURS!!!  Security Personnel inside many stores.  GO SECURITY!!!  Employees at the eateries and the shops.  GO EMPLOYEES!!!  Citizens giving direction.  GO NYC CITIZENS!!!  You get the picture, huh?  Number One Teams… EVERYWHERE!!!

We were tourists, touring the major sites.  Shopping at shops.  Eating at eateries.    GO TOURISTS!!!  The kids danced at the Broadway Dance Studio… with other “professional” dancers during 3 different 1 1/2 hr. dance classes.  More eating at eateries!!!  More shopping.  More touring.  Most of which required walking, Walking and MORE WALKING!!!  Walking here.  Walking there. Walking, WALKING… EVERYWHERE!!!  My legs still ache!!!  FROM WALKING!!!  Standing.  Climbing stairs.  AND… MORE WALKING!!! 

We enjoyed marvelous ice cream cakes and ice cream given to us free from ColdStone.  We  dined at Kelly’s and enjoyed service by extremely talented singing waiters/waitresses.  “THIS”… was fun!  The Broadway Musical, “Newsies,” was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!  WOW!!!  Such great, Great, GREAT TALENT!!!   DOUBLE WOW, WOW!!!  I am certain they received a very good review that night!!!  I feel so blessed to have been a part of that very appreciative audience.

GREAT TEAMS of everyday peeps giving the BEST of themselves for “JUST” today… “EVERY” day!!!  Sure, maybe NOT ALL members of EVERY team were having GREAT days… EVERY day… but they were still out there, at least, giving the BEST they had to offer!!!  (Pppsssttt… Some peeps were having pretty bad days, I think.  😉  But we ALL experience those, don’t we?)

Thank you NYC!!!  What a great, Great, GREAT experience!!!  I am, however, so, So, SOOOOOO glad to be home!  In St. Augustine,FL!!!  THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME!!!
