New York, New York

With the entire world closed, it looks like it may be awhile before I can do any traveling. With that in mind, I’m re-posting from my original blog. I created the blog to keep family informed while I took my mom on a cruise to Greece.

Day 15:

Last full day of the vacation. This morning I got up and headed downtown to the tks ticket window to buy tickets for a Broadway show. Got there early so I wandered around the dock area. I got tickets to see Finnigan's Rainbow, didn't know much about the story, but it mom and I had seen most of the other options.

The Pier at the Battery, I walked down here to get tickets at the 1/2 price ticket window

About 1:30 we left for Radio City and the Rocketts Christmas Special. We had tickets in the upper mezzanine. Good seats, but right after the show started the people in front of us showed up. Two women and two kids. The kids were fine, but the woman in front of mom kept moving around and her oversized melon blocked about half the stage from mom's view. I offered to switch seats, but mom was worried it would bother the folks behind us. Mom had to keep shifting because every few minutes melon head would take another picture and she had to move around until she got the perfect shot. The show was great, mom said it was very different from the Rocketts show she saw in California. She really seemed to enjoy it.

Radio City home to the Rocketts.

We walked from Radio City to Times Square, where we had dinner at TGIFridays. Then we walked to the theater to see Finnigan's. I told mom I did not think we were going to have as good of seats as we had at the earlier show. I was wrong. We were in front row seats one and two of the center section. The show was really good.

After the show we walked back to the hotel.

Tomorrow, we are going to try to go to one of the museums in Central Park before we head to JFK and our flight home.
