Columbus Circle

We had a beautiful sunny Sunday in New York. Since we weren't far from Colombus Circle, I had the idea to stop by for a photo. The view from the shopping mall on the corner is excellent!

Happy Friday everyone! Click on the skywatch link to see more skies from around the world.

Shopping for the Legless

I also did a lot of shopping while in New York. As you can imagine, it takes a few years for the fashion trends to trickle down to the south. I had a great time looking through all the boutiques in SoHo.

I really liked this red dress, but apparently it's for a legless person, so I passed it by.

Katz's Deli

No trip to the Big Apple is complete without a trip to Katz's Deli, it's a real New York institution. You may also recognize it from the famous orgasm scene in When Harry Met Sally.

My husband and I got there extra early on Saturday morning, usually the place is packed. He loves their Reuben sandwich. I had a bagel with lox. Next time I think I'll try the latkes, but my MiL makes such good ones, I'm not sure they could compare!

Theater District

Of course with my love of the theater, we couldn't miss seeing a show on Broadway! A friend of mine from university recommended August: Osage County. It was an especially good choice because the play was written by a Pulitzer Prize winning author from Oklahoma (my home state) and the story is even set in the great plains of the NE corner of the state.

We were lucky that Tony-nominated actress Amy Morton had recently rejoined the cast to reprise her role as Barbara. She is the hottest thing on Broadway right now and I can see why. The whole cast was strong as it's really an ensemble drama in the tradition of the greats like Eugene O'Neil. Just beautiful!

We got our tickets from the TKTS booth on Times Square where you can get half-price seats. We were right at the front, which made for some interesting angles - but it also gave me the opportunity to sneak a photo of the set which was strictly verboten!

Fresh Air... Times Sqaure!

This week I'll be showing some photos of my trip to NYC. Unfortunately, it rained all day Friday so I didn't get many photos. And on Saturday we were so busy trying to see and do everything I didn't have time for shooting! I'll show you what I did get though - like this wonderful night view in Times Square. I never get tired of the city that never sleeps!
