Evil Shenanigans in NYC … Part 1

We arrived in New York City late on Friday night.  It was cold, in the 20’s, and there was a lot of wind which made it feel much colder.   It seemed within a few moments my face and legs were completely numb with cold.  We met the driver at baggage claim and once we had our bags we were off.

The first two nights of our stay in New York City were spent in a boutique hotel called the Chelsea Pines Inn.  The hotel is a converted residence and each room is decorated with movie posters from Hollywood actors of the golden age.  Our room was the ‘Jeff Chandler’ room.  I had to look him up on the Internet because I had never heard of him, but there are rumors he was a cross-dresser!  Sweet!

The room itself was comfortable, if small.  The bathroom, divided into a shower and sink area and a small closet with a toilet in it, were toy-town small but functional.  The Chelsea Pines Inn also provides a complimentary breakfast each morning.  Free is the best price. 

So, what did I see in NYC?

The first place we went was Ground Zero.  Seeing the empty space, the hum of construction, and the American flags waving in the breeze is very moving.

After Ground Zero we walked up to Wall Street.  Along the way there was this guy dressed as a panda.  Awesome!

Since it was Saturday it was pretty quiet on Wall Street and there were just a lot of tourists, like me, taking pictures.

Next we decided to see the Empire State Building.  The views were fantastic!   From there we went to Times Square, but I did not feel comfortable taking my camera out there with all the people. 


On Sunday we moved to the Hotel Ganesvoort.  This was the hotel booked by the PR people, and it was very nice! 



The bathroom was BY FAR the nicest hotel bathroom I have ever seen.  Also, when I got there I also got a bag of goodies!

So, I’ll bet your curious about the actual event?  Well, come back tomorrow and I will give you the full scoop from The Spotted Pig to The Cake-Off for a Cause!
