Weekend in New York City

Times Square Subway
On our last trip to NYC, we got lost multiple times on the subway. The MTA people saved us!

Hello friends. It is been a long time since I have devoted a blog to Hamilton. But now is the time. Actually, the blog devoted to Hamilton will probably be next week. Today, I am thinking (with pleasing expectation) about our upcoming trip to New York City this week. It has been nearly one year since we purchased tickets to go see Hamilton on Broadway in New York City. We are very excited about our trip to the Big Apple and look forward to the adventures that we have planned.

The last time we took our children to New York City was in 2011. Now they are 12 and 13 and we can do so much more plus they will remember more about this visit. We have nailed down certain activities:  Hamilton (of course) and we have tickets to go up to the crown of the Statue of Liberty. However, other than those two activities, we do not have any other firm plans.

We will be there for three days.

So, if you have New York experiences and you want to recommend a restaurant, or maybe a hidden jewel, or something for young teens, I would love your recommendations. We are looking forward to spending a few days in New York, walking around, riding the subway, and visiting a city other than our home city of Washington DC (which I like to call “The City” but my New Yorker friends who live here prefer “The District”).

We are big Harry Potter fans and are thinking of going to a restaurant called Pasta Wiz which has a wizard theme. We might be game to see another show (School of Rock?) though I am wary of seeing something that might dilute the Hamilton experience. Anyway, wishing everyone a fabulous week. We will be kicking around in The City if you’re looking for us!

  1. I haven’t been to New York City (outside of the airport) since Dec 31st, 1999. After spending the entire day from 7:30 am on corralled behind a series of barricades where we stood practically in the same place waiting for the ball to drop, I really wasn’t in a rush to go back.

    1. Wow–you were in NYC at the potential technical Armageddon?! Sorry it wasn’t an amazing experience, but I understand. Maybe a good premise for a story, though? 😉

      1. I was! When I finally made it back to my hotel in NJ, I called my mom to tell her I was okay. Her reply? “Yeah I know – I saw you on tv.”
