New York, New York!

It is a beautiful day!  The sun is shining, the birds are chirping.   There is a parade later on today.  Just a another fun day in the city that never sleeps.  I'm wondering, has anyone seen the waterfalls yet?  They are spectacular!  A great work of art.  There is a fantastic spot under the bridge where you can sit by the water, eat S'mores and drink sparkling wine, and watch all 4 waterfalls at once.  The Statue of Liberty in the background and boats sailing by... I <3 New York!Smile

No I haven't seen them in person yet, I have on TV though, but the summer is still young, so I may just take a trip there. What's the name of the spot under the bridge ? Sounds great.

I don't know exactly.  They are planning on building a whole kind of park there.  Right now it's just a small outdoor bar with a few tables that have umbrellas over them.  It's under the Brooklyn Bridge (on the Brooklyn side) and it's open till 10pm.  They serve beer, iced tea, wine, fish tacos, fries, etc...it's a nice place to just sit back and enjoy the view.

I've seen two of the four waterfalls.  Nice.   Today is a nice day, breezy.

It's a great day.  If you walk over the bridge you end up walking right over one of the waterfalls.  It's an amazing sight.

I hope it is just as nice when I go on my vacation. I'm going to go into tourist mode and see New York through different eyes. I get so down on New York hustling and bustling to work everyday that I forget how wonderful it is.

I used to work in NYC too for many years, and i never appreciated the city at that time. Since moving slightly north of it, I love going in occasionally and now know how to appreciate it for what it is... FAB!!!! Have fun on your vaca!

Re: New York, New York!

I know exactly what you mean.  I've started to appreciate it all over again over the last few weeks.  Sometimes it gets to be too much but I realize how lucky I am to live here.  I posted this thread in the Travel forums as per 's comment.  I didn't realize and so I added a few extra details and pictures for those who don't live in this great city of ours.
