My mother always lamented when we lived in New York we hadn’t done any of the ‘touristy’ things.
So when we moved back she declared the first week as ‘WE’RE GOING TO GO EVERYWHERE AND DO EVERYTHING THAT A TOURIST WOULD WEEK’.
We did the Circle Line Tour, visited the Empire State building, the Chrysler building, we went to Liberty Island and climbed the Statue of Liberty.
We toured China town, the Battery, Greenwich Village, and Central Park.
We went to FAO Schwartz, Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman……
And you know what the clearest memory I have of that week?
How much my feet hurt!
