New York City for a long weekend

Yes, I did!  I went to NYC to see Eric Clapton in concert.  The concert was fabulous!  I went early last year and again this year.  One of my friends said, "But you went last year!"  I didn't understand her concern.

This year I had a great seat and wonderful seatmates.  On one side was a mother and daughter; the daughter had flown in from Bermuda for the concert. (Still not as far as California.)  On the other side was a couple; he was a pharmacist and she was a winemaker from North Carolina.

I'm not high-end; so I ate mostly at diners and street food stalls.

There's always something going on in the city, early on Saturday morning there was a Korean Day parade; then in the afternoon an informal "parade" of these trike/bikes showing support for Breast Cancer Awareness.

I spent a lot of time walking.  NYC is a walkers paradise.  Above the Empire State Building and below the Flatiron Building.  I never tire of these two great buildings.

 On Sunday I went on a half-day food tour of Brooklyn.  It was the best food tour I've ever been on and highly recommend the company, New York Fun Tours.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my life with me,
