New York, New York ( More Photos )

My grandaughter and me in the foyer of the New York Public Library. One of the oldest and the biggest in the United States. It was established in 1895 and was opened in 1911. Marble features everywhere. This place is worth a visit. As you can imagine, it had a lot of wealthy benefactors. The lion near my grandaughter is named Patience, I believe.

A photo of the Dairy, now a visitor's center and gift shop in Central Park. It was built in 1870.

The point on the Empire State Building taken from the observation deck. It made me almost dizzy to take this photo.

The huge St. Patrick's Cathedral nestled inbetween the towering skyscrapers. It was being built in 1858 but not completed until the year 1878. Work was halted on the building during the time of the civil war.

Entrance to the famous toy store. As you can see, lots of folks going into it.

A huge dog in the toy store.

More stuffed toys at F.A.O.Schwarz Toy Store.

We went into Trump Plaza. I wanted to show my grandaughter and friend the waterfall in the lobby area but it was under maintainence.

A little birdy (Ragpatch Primitives) told me this was a great place to eat and it was delicious and reasonably priced for NYC. The sandwiches are huge ! Free pickles are served with the food.

Walking towards Radio City Music Hall. This is a side entrance.
