Mom & I had a great time in NYC a couple of weeks ago.
We traveled by train from Utica, because it was easy and really inexpensive. Union Station is lovely, with lots of marble and long oak benches:
Upon reaching Penn Station, a taxi took us to our hotel, The Wellington. The location was great - just a block from Carnegie Hall for Bob's concert, and a short walk to the Ambassador Theatre to see Chicago (John Schneider was starring as lawyer Billy Flynn, and it was his first week in the role. He was actually quite good...).
We did spend some time walking around NYC, and upon a suggestion of a friend, we went to the observation deck of Rockefeller Center. The views were just terrific! It was a windy day in the mid 40's, but sunny and bright!

And it wouldn't be a trip to NYC without a little time in St. Patrick's Cathedral:
Mom had a great time, and I'm sure we'll be going back in the future.
