What fabulous views of New York! For the first time, a cruise ship we are on entered New York City from the south, in the afternoon, passing by Long Island, going under the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, into the world’s largest harbor, passing the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, Battery Park/Wall Street, and north up the Hudson River to Pier 90 on the west side of Manhattan, docking at 50th Street. We have never seen this view before, from Deck 10 of the ship, passing by the Statue of Liberty and having to look down on it!
We had 24 hours in Manhattan, 4:00 pm to 4:00 pm. A Mexican dinner and dessert at Junior’s Cheesecake before a Broadway show were on our agenda. Some Like it Hot was our show, and it was a lot of fun, as you can see in the photos. A NY breakfast and Times Square were the second day’s agenda, along with walking around and taking photos of various things we find fun, pretty, and/or interesting. We accomplished everything, and we really do ♥️ NY! It was a terrific 24 hours in one of our favorite places on earth. The city grabs us every single time, wraps its heart around ours, and hugs us more closely. To be in love with a city is a wonderful thing. Best of all, it loves us back.
