Scratching the surface

sunny

We decided to jump on one of the hop-on-hop-off buses to get a feel for where everything is and an overview of the city.

After cruising through the Upper West Side, Harlem and Uppe East Side, we jumped off the bus and wandered through Central Park for a while. We must have been in there for over an hour and barely covered a quarter of the park it is so big.

There were obvious traces of recen snowfalls still around, and the ponds in the park were still iced over for the most part, unfortunately (or fortunately as far as my elbow is concerned) they were not frozen enough to ice-skate on.

After the park we walked down Broadway through Time Square, and did a little shopping at Macy's which is huge, though not big enough to stock a jacket in Andrews size despite 3 levels of mens clothing. They did, however, stock a wide variety of watches, one of which is on its way home with me.

Quiet dinner at a brewery (food average, beer OK), and day one is over. Tomorrow we hit downtown
