New York – Day One

Trip to New York was a surprise birthday ‘present’ for Sues special birthday.

Left home 5am ish and arrived in New York JFK airport at about 5pm. Hour delay in leaving, due to waiting for other passengers, whose connecting flights had been delayed. Flight took 8 hours, head wind apparently. Had a couple of meals, wine, beer and watched a couple of films. Virgin Atlantic highly recommended.
Had to queue for over an hour to get through the immigration, picture and finger prints taken.

But managed to find the train to get out of the airport and the next train to get to Penn Station and sure enough came out of the subway, crossed the road and there was the hotel. http://www.newyorkerhotel.com/home Lovely Art Deco hotel.

We are on the 35th floor, views great.

Went to the Tick Tock cafe for a burger and chocolate cake and coffee. This would be one many meals, especially breakfast that we would have here.

Had a quick wander around a few shops, including Macys, almost a ‘town’ in its self.
But now nearly 1.00am in morning for us, 8:00pm over here. so called it a day.
