First time in New York City was a few weeks ago. My husband, Jack, was on the Dr. Oz Show -- due to an accident he had at the farm in 2007. The show will "air" on May 10th at 11 a.m. in the St. Louis market.
They flew us in -- put us up at the Mariott Marquis in Times Square. We wandered around -- to the Hershey's Store -- little shops -- theatre district. Ate at Famous Dave's BBQ (wow was THAT good). Bought a $15 brownie (delicious).
NYC is an amazing place. It is truly an international city. Lots of languages being spoken daily -- lots of cultures mingling. Great place to visit.
Yesterday someone tried to blow up Times Square. Shame on them. There is so much good stuff happening in NYC. People are getting along with each other. People of diverse backgrounds and lifestyles are living together in harmony.
Shame on those who would try to blow up visitors to this great city.
David Letterman isn't joking when each night he says, "Live from New York, the greatest city in the world!" I agree.
Photo is of me in front of the hotel; New York City's finest on horseback in Times Square -- letting kids pet the horses; Jack at "30 Rock" in front of the Dr. Oz sign; and a view of Times Square.
Again. Shame on the terrorists and hurray for the t-shirt vendor (and yes, I bought a dozen t-shirts in NYC) who spotted the trouble. Way to go.
I LOVE NY.
