NYC – Day 4

Agenda:
*Broadway show – Hamilton
*Shopping!
*Steak dinner

Our hotel, Marriott Marquis is in the heart of Broadway. Big question for us was what shows would we see? We all agreed Hamilton was at the top of the list, but all websites were quoting $600+ per seat! Too rich for our blood. We’ll pick other shows.

Monday as we are walking in to call it a night, we pass by the Richard Rodgers Theatre and box office where Hamilton is playing. There were people in there. Ummmmm…. K and I say “Moms! Let’s give it a try.” We get to the front of the line and just ask what’s available. They had tickets for the Wednesday matinee 10 rows back center stage $229 each. That we CAN afford! We couldn’t believe it! We were fumbling to get our credit cards out so fast like the tickets would disappear!

We slept in Wednesday morning because our first event of the day was Hamilton at 2pm!

Brilliantly written show. The rapping was phenomenal. I feel very privileged to say I saw this show on Broadway.

We capped off our evening with some shopping at my all time favorite TJ Maxx! I couldn’t help myself even in NYC! I was having shopping withdrawals. Then Mom requested a steak dinner. Simple Google searches were our best way of finding really good restaurants, and it nailed it with the Gallagher’s recommendation. Mom and I split a filet because they were so big! Great way to have a night cap!

NYC – Day 3

Agenda:
*Live with Kelly & Ryan
*Gray line Uptown bus tour
*MoMa
*Nap

K & I were eager beavers to find out what live shows we could see while in NYC – SNL, JF… Our Moms like the morning shows, so we quickly scored tix to Kelly & Ryan, Live! It broadcasts at 9am, so we had to get up early to get in line even though we had tickets. We were all dreading the 6 am alarm. Get these girls some breakfast then lets… wait.

It was a exciting experience. My mother made me be on live TV as a child and I failed and so did she for not preparing me, and my bawling on the car floor ensued. This time we could relax behind the camera, mostly. Our guests were Demi Moore & David Muir!

Kelly and Ryan were very courteous and friendly during the breaks, lots of the selfies and autographs. The audience was a little more aggressive then I expected trying to get the celebs attention. We sent messages back to the Midwest to make sure we were scheduled on the DVR!

As were were scoping out where to get lunch, we noticed a lot of police and barricades set up on the street. Trump was leaving his building. We got locked in. It could have been a decoy, but I saw the shadow of the hair in the middle SUV.

I was more on the lookout for snipers. After a meal at Burger Heaven, we made our way to MoMA. Selfie with the Van Gogh Starry Night!

Shout out to BD and his Piacsso piece!

I was most excited to see a Pollack in real life!

I was hoping we would see some outdoor art and bam! Hippo Ballerina sculpture was across the street from Lincoln Center.

Everyone was starting to get slap happy. It was nap time. On our way back, I found my parcel of land in this big city!

Hopped on the bus to get home and enjoyed views of The MET,
