So, my daughter was in NYC on business this past Weds and Thursday. She met her 2 collegues at the Affinia Shelburne. One had never been to the city, from Arizona, and other was here maybe 20 years ago.Both boys
They all wanted Pizza so she took them to John's in midtown. They were yakking on the way there and no one paid a lot of attention. When they came out, it was dark. They walked back to the hotel through Times Square.
She said she had to back track because she lost them! Guess where they were..Standing, gawking, turning in a circle, mouths open in the middle of Times Square. We forget how gobsmacking it all is, I guess.
She had a good laugh over it and then again, when they went to the rooftop bar at the Affinia Shelburne, when they just stopped dead in their tracks at the sight of the ESB , all lit up
I am coming to the city the 18 and 19th of this month. I am going to try really hard to get in touch with my sense of wonder
So, it is true that we tourists just stop in the middle of the street for no apparent reason..I remember doing that my first time IN Times Square,staring at a theatre..I wanted to be a stage actress, when I was young and very foolish..lol.. I even burst into tears in the middle of the street.. My husband was so embarassed..I'm sure you guys would have made fun of me, as I would now..but I'm still going to try to get that back..:)
