After a very good plane flight (courtesy of British Airways) we arrived in New York at midday today (Presidents Day of all things!). We’re staying at the Waldorf Astoria and they have, very kindly, upgraded us to a suite as it’s Doug’s birthday this week.
So we now have our very own entrance hallway (!) and lounge area - and the rest of the hotel is fabulous as expected.
After settling in we took a little walk around the area – this is the ice rink at the Rockefeller Center – as its Presidents Day there are extra flags everywhere! It’s a pity we Brits don’t fly ours more often.
Doug in Times Square – the police were involved with someone else!
James in Grand Central Station.
Our home for this week.
As we are tired tonight due to getting up this morning at 4am! as well as the 5 hour time difference, we made our way back to the hotel for cocktails in the hotel bar before having an early night.
