An Epic Christmas Fairytale In New York ...but...
What a wonderful experience to view the city at a magical time that gets a 4* BUT the coach company ruined it by continuously being late cutting short our visits or even not turning up. Also the transfer in NY was wholly inadequate and smashed our suitcases. That gets a 1* The return cruise on QM2 was outstanding and well in to the Christmas spirit and that gets a 5* The Hotel was 5* and in easy walking distance of the nightlife. Plenty of restaurants lots of Italian but we have those here, Irish too but have those here, but you have to go to the famous corner hotdog venue 'Gray's Papaya' an outstanding experience of New yorkers real life and featured in many films. All part of the experience. Macy's is not what we expected in the way of decorations being Christmas but to get to their decoration department you can go up those magnificent original wooden escalators to bring back the feeling of the thirties and bag yourself a heavily discounted bargain. Being of retirement age we have the house loaded with things from around the world so we got a tree ornament so that every year we are reminded of that magical trip. the Rockettes were brilliant. the Botanical Gardens dull due to the time of year as was central Park other than the Horse & Carriage rides being less crowded (Just to say you had done it) The Visit to see a Gospel Church and Choir was also a let down. But overall I would not have missed this trip as the time of year made it and seeing some of the buidings brings back memories such Miricale on 34th Street, GhostBusters, Sleepless in Seatle, Hoeme Alone and many many more. What other city is related to so many magical fairy tales.
