We're in NYC and guess who we saw......!!!

Hi,

We're in the middle of a fantastic week in Manhattan, and was going to wait until we were back before sharing a trip report, but had to share this! We came out of the Museum of Modern Art today, and people were hanging around the sides of the road. We overheard people talking, so we waitied about 20 mins and Barack Obama drove past in a 28 car motorcade!!

How lucky was that, what a coincidence :)

Have to sing the Barack Obama song whenever I hear his name, it's ingrained on my brain!!! (From The chris moyles show on radio 1)

Top celeb spot that!

Enjoy the rest of your trip

Awesome! Always nice when unexpected things like that happen. We were just walking down the street one day last June and saw a road suddenly closed off by a guy dressed in a black suit with sunglasses. All these black SUVs and limos were allowed in. We asked what was going on and he said it was the movie premiere for White House Down. So we gathered amongst the crowds and took videos and pics of Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx.

He was rushing to dine at Maialino with his wife. Ziggy, were you part of the entourage?
