Sep 12, 2017 - Botanical Gardens & Chihuly

I was very lucky and grateful to be invited to go with Diana, Phyllis, Lynne, and Carol to the Botanical Gardens across from the Bronx Zoo for the day. I had a cortisone shot in my right heel yesterday or else I couldn't have done the trip as it has been hurting that badly! The traffic wasn't bad, the route was direct, and we got a parking space in the first row of the parking lot! There was a tram just waiting for us (so it seemed - our timing was fantastic) so we hopped on to get an overview of the park before deciding what to see. At the...

Jun 15, 2017 - Bronx, New York City

Bronx, NY We said good-bye to Rhode Island and hit the road again. The Bronx Zoo in New York City is the largest metropolitan zoo in the US and among the largest in the world. If the definition of largest is based on physical size, that is certainly true. It requires lot and lots and lots of walking. On average, the zoo has 2.15 million visitors each year. We saw some new animals, some colorful animals and some familiar animals. It was a beautiful day for walking.

Sep 20, 2012 - NYC Week #4-Yankee Stadium and the Bronx Zoo

Hi everyone: We've been putting in long days and some longer evenings and sometimes we're just too tired to get these Entries out there.

Not wanting to dissapoint me, Mike re-schedulled our great tickets to the following day in the first game of a double header. We both took the A-Train to the Bronx to watch the Bombers win. They later won the night game as well to pull ahead of...

Aug 31, 2007 - Buying Tickets

We bought our tickets today! Woohoo!! And what a long process that was! We ended up purchasing our first let of tickets through Airtreks.com. Charlie was very helpful as well as patient as we probably changed our route approximately 25 times. We purchased our first Pacific circle which will take us through the South Pacific to South East Asia and then back to California. It certainly seems real now!

Aug 13, 2007 - Yankees win - best game yet!

The Yankees-Orioles game is a night game and so we had the day to explore and adventure in New York City. David and Julie went to the Guggenheim Museum; Matthew and Ron went to the Museum of Natural History and Elizabeth went to the New York City Public Library and then walked up 5th Avenue to meet David and Julie for lunch. It was a beautiful day and so no complaints on the weather or the sights. We met back at the hotel and joined the other Yankee fans on the subway to the Bronx. A point of disclosure. I am a long standing Yankee fan but...
