We arrived Wednesday, April 9. The company had arranged all air travel and ground transportation. A very nice Lincoln driven by a friendly, professional valet transported me from New York's Laguardia Airport (in the borough of Queens) to the hotel.
We stayed in the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
The hotel is located in Midtown Manhattan. Our company treated us to a warm reception dinner complete with open bar, hors d'oeuvres, and live musical entertainment. After the festivities, we were free to do whatever we wished until the following day at 9:45 am.
My sister, being a big fan of the Big Apple, called me and we talked. I set out walking (something popular to do in Manhattan), and looked for familiar places.I found a few you might have heard of:
St. Patrick's Cathedral
More to come...
