I had a great time in NYC, I actually appreciate the city more now that I did the tourist thing than when I actually lived there.
I had the best seats I have ever had at Yankee Stadium, usually it has been the bleachers for us, but my bro-in-law got us seats 9 rows back behind
But don't buy your Yankee memorablia there, shop in Modells or any other sports store in the city for better prices on hats and t-shirts. There's
also a Yankee Store on 42nd Street.
The camera used was an Olympus 3.2 mp Camedia Digital Camera D-535. I got it right before the trip and it takes really great pictures, the zoom is
amazing on this camera.
Anyone living or going to NY for a visit, I highly recommend hitting all the tourist spots, but don't forget to include ChinaTown and Downtown
Brooklyn into your trip. I did my best shopping at those two areas.
I was in lalaland when I got to the garment district...I found everything I have ever looked for there, all the beads, laces, trims and fabrics you
could ever want or need.
If you have kids, a visit to the ToysRUs flagship store in Times Square along with a ride on the ferris wheel inside the building is a must. The
Madame Toussant wax museum is expensive but it was fun and worth it imo. If you're kids are into Comics, try visiting Midtown Comics in the Times
