New York City Vacation - Day 1
On my bucket list was a visit to New York City - checked off. We had quite a busy 6 days there! The first night we just checked into our small hotel/guest house in the West Village and then walked around the area. We also got our Metro Cards for 7 days of unlimited subway and bus use - and we certainly used them a lot! Our hotel was a few minutes’ walk from a subway station, one that had both North/South (Uptown/Downtown) lines and a cross-town line, very convenient. In between the subway and our hotel were several coffee places, we ended up patronizing Think coffee for our afternoon coffee rest. There was also a small convenience store where we got our morning bananas. First thing the next morning we headed over to pick up our New York Passes - which enabled us to get through the rest of our stay without constantly handing over cash - we did that before we left home. I think we saved money, and we definitely went to a lot of things we might have passed on without it. Museum of Modern Art – Spent a few hours here, and once I got to the fourth floor I was glad we had. I got to see one of my favorite pictures - "Starry Night" by Vincent VanGogh!
