Finally some NY photos

Had 176 photos floating inside our digital camera. Remember the days when you took 24 pictures and actually had them developed. Digital has been nice, besides storing hundreds of photos, you noticed how much longer it takes to actually take pictures..."stand here, let me look through the view finder, ok hold still look at me (snap picture), wait, let me look at the picture, oh wait, one strand of hair was sticking up, let me take another picture (snap), let me look, wait that guy in the background was doing a raise the roof sign, let me snap another picture (snap) get the idea, it just takes longer...anyway here are a few photos from our New York trip.

JD (up) and Tasha (down) in Central Park.

Tasha sitting on the Subway. We actually got unlimited subway passes each day and took the subway just about everywhere we went.

JD waiting for the subway.

JD on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. That place was ginormous, but very cool.

JD in front of one of Vincent Van Gogh's "Haystacks". Out of the thousands and thousands of pieces of art, this was one of the only ones we recognized. We also saw original Picassos and Rembrandts just to name a few. Pretty amazing.

Radio City Music Hall. That's Tasha on the corner under the umbrella. It rained most of the time we were in New York. Tasha was looking for little orphan Annie...

Tasha at the heart of Times Square.

We watched a few segments of the Today Show. Here we are right behind Matt Lauer and Al Roker. They are both very short...Al is maybe 5'7"

This parking garage was near our hotel and so every time we walked by we stopped and considered what it took to park your car in the city every day. It was simply an elevator system that cost $25 a day.

Outside the NBC studios building. We were actually approached and asked if we would sit in on a Dr. Oz Show taping, it was raining and so we did. We missed it when the show aired, but it wasn't a great show. The whole time inside the studios, we were looking for Tina Fey, or wait, was it Sarah Palin...anyway, didn't see anyone famous.

Statue of Liberty from Battery Park view. The water was pretty rough and it was raining so we elected not to take the boat ride over to the island.

This was also taken at Battery Park, we were actually at Ground Zero on September 11 although this was the only picture we took. There really isn't much at Ground Zero to take photos of. There were several soldiers and memorials around the site. It was a very sobering feeling to be on location. We still felt the spirit of the memorials and are so appreciative of the service men and women that did so much that day.

The Manhattan Temple. Right across the street from the Lincoln Center and the Julliard School of Dance. We did some sealings one day we were there and had a great experience. President Kimball purchased the proper in the early 70's and it was a chapel for many years before being converted into a temple and dedicated in 2004.

Sadly, this is the only picture of the two of us together. We were just coming out of watching Wicked on Broadway. It was a great show and we were so happy we made the effort to go.
