NYC Fun

Location: Catskill, NY (High 64, Low 41)

One of the events for this spring that I’ve been looking forward to was accompanying my niece Hannah on her 4th grade class trip to NY City. This past Friday was the big day! We started out at the Amtrak Train Station in Hudson, NY.

Selfie on the train!

 

 

 

I’ve been to the city several times, but this trip did include one big first – riding on the subway! I was glad that Hannah’s teacher knew her way around.

Our first stop was at the American Museum of Natural History. My favorite part was the floor with all the dinosaurs!

We were so lucky because it was supposed to rain most of the day, but it actually only ended up raining occasionally.

 

 

IMG_2427We made a quick stop at Toys r Us so the kids could do a little power shopping, and then it was on to The Art of the Brick.

Pretty awesome!

…we walked to Penn Station to catch the train back to Hudson.

 

 

 

It was a really long day, but a lot of fun. I wouldn’t like to live in New York City, but it’s a great place to visit!
