Chelsea Piers Sports & Entertainment Complex is a 28-acre waterfront sports village located between 17th and 23rd Streets along Manhattan's Hudson River. This $120 million, privately-financed project has transformed four historic, but long-neglected, piers into a major center for public recreation and waterfront access. Situated on Piers 59, 60, 61 and 62 and in the headhouse that connects them, the Complex features several sports and entertainment venues. We had a sandwich right here at the cafe with a view to The Spirit of New York!

A carousel had been in operation at Central Park since 1871. The original carousel was powered by a blind horse and mule. The current carousel was manufactured by the Stein & Goldstien Company of Brookyln, for a trolley terminal outside Coney Island.
Visit the carousel's own website on the link HERE

New Yorker Hotel is conveniently located in Midtown Manhattan on 34th Street and the corner of 8th Avenue.
This hotel is just across from Madison Square Garden and Penn Station and it's the closest major hotel to the Javits
Convention Center. Down the street you'll find the Empire State Building, and Macy's. A few minutes' walk and you're in
the Theater District and the new Times Square entertainment area.
We stayed there 10 days and I will do it again sometime. I'm lovin' it!

The bridge were down at The Palisades. Palisades, New York is a very small hamlet located in southeastern Rockland County.
It borders the Hudson River to the east, New Jersey to the south, Tappan to the west, and Sparkill to the north.
The George Washington Bridge.
And, well, this is The Bronx, one of New York City's "must see" communities. It's a place of world-famous attractions,
diverse artistic expression, miles of parks, and over 60 landmarks and historic districts. It's where people like
Edgar Allan Poe and Mark Twain lived -- and break dancing and salsa music were born.

Here's Ellis Island! Ellis Island was the gateway through which more than 12 million immigrants passed between
1892 and 1954 in their search for freedom of speech and religion, and for economic opportunity in the United States.
And Govenors Island with The Statue of Liberty . . .
And the ruin . . .
. . . . . Manhattan Bridge, and the next will be Brooklyn Bridge
The famous Yankee Stadium – known as "The Home of Champions." Yankee Stadium opened for its inaugural game
