We did a lot of walking today. We walked down 5th Avenue past all the expensive stores like Tiffany's, Gucci and more. We went in St. Patrick's Church, the Trump Tower, the Apple Store and FAO Schwartz toy store. We walked through Central Park and saw Strawberry Fields and the Imagine mosaic. We walked down Central Park West where we saw Dustin Hoffman. I zoomed in to take a picture of him and he spoke to us and asked if we wanted a picture with him. He was very friendly and we had a little chat. Then we walked through the park again to the Guggenheim museum. Thank goodness we got a bus back to our hotel because by that time we had been walking for about 5 hours.

Today we went to the Empire State Building and went to the top (86th floor). More amazing views of the city, and it was pretty windy up there. After that we walked down 34th street and did more sightseeing. In the evening we saw the Broadway show The Lion King.....simply amazing and a dream come true for me. When the show got out we walked around Times Square and took pictures of all the lights and crowds.

We are in New York City for a week's vacation and it's off to a good start. We had some misty rain which soon cleared up so we walked to Times Square and took in all the sights and sounds of the city. There is so much to see, you can't see it all. After Times Square we walked to Radio City Music Hall and Rockefeller Center where we went to the "top of the rock".......amazing views of the city up there, even at dusk.
