New York City - My Take On The Big Apple
|A market just around the corner on Broadway|
We stayed at the Hotel Belleclaire near 77th Street and Broadway during our Easter weekend getaway. It is a cozy boutique style hotel with smallish but comfortable rooms. It is well situated near a subway station and a great jumping off point to just about anywhere in the city.
If you preferred not to venture into the downtown area you could shop to your hearts content in the immediate area as well as take walks in Central Park, just three blocks from where we stayed in this Upper West Side hotel.

Apparently the new World Trade Center will have an observation area on the 102th floor but I don't think anything will touch the awe of the stately skyscraper from the 1930s.
|Closer view of the Statue|
Unless you can get into the statue itself, all you can do is wander around the pedestal.The fact there is no interpretation center for the casual visitor to the island blows me away.
Sure there is a museum in the pedestal but it takes a six months wait to get inside.
I think I captured the beauty of the statue on this fine spring day.
