"New York, just like I pictured it. Skyscrapers and everything." Stevie Wonder

LIberty IslandIn July my daughter and I took an exciting trip to New York City. Since we both lived there for many years and have had several visits since moving, we decided to check out some adventures we had not yet been on.

This post is a different from my usual gallery posts. Don’t worry. there are plenty of pictures. But this is more a travelogue combined with history lessons. I hope you enjoy your virtual visit to some fun places.

Here are links to the big stories of our trip as well as links to some of the cool restaurants we went to, in case you are going to New York sometime soon.
