NYC To Do List

It’s officially our last week living in New York and in true New York fashion our internet has stopped working at home (hence the lack of posts this weekend). Thanks Time Warner Cable! If I made a list of things I WON’T miss about NYC, Time Warner’s monopoly of the City’s cable and internet service would be on that list. Luckily we have a solution. Leave it to Paul’s Google Phone to save the day so that we can now tether the internet for our computers. I love technology.

Anyway, this is supposed to be a post about wonderful things in NYC, specifically the things that have been on our “To Do” list for years. We’ve been able to cross off some of the items (as you can see) but alas if it doesn’t happen by Saturday of this week, we’ll have to attempt to cross off more items when we come back to visit. Enjoy, Mari & Paul
