I got this on my trip this year, 2011 when I went with my older sister, nephew and roommate. We had the best time. We were in NYC for 4th of July. It was heaven. NO TRAFFIC. We parked right in front of the Marriott near Bryant Park FOR FREE! Shopping was heaven. Saks has up to 70% off. I bought my nieces and nephews a few RL caps, shirts, shoes. Belts for myself and even got a Ferragamo wallet from the Ferragmo store. We walked from Central Park back to our hotel. Ate 2 lunches in a row, one restaurant after next. My sister thought I was crazy. All of that eating, I did not gain a pound because all the walking. My nephew got to go up the Empire State building finally. One of the most memorable events was GROUND ZERO and see one of the Freedom Plaza going up. It was our country’s most patriot moment that I’ve experienced.
