NYC for a night

This past weekend, my parents very kindly agreed to watch the boys overnight so that we could get away.  Last year on this same weekend, we spent the night in NYC.  We had such a great time that we decided to do it again.  This year we stayed at Central Park South and opted to take a guided bicycle tour through Central Park.  Here we are along the ride:

 Probably 2 weeks earlier and the foliage would have been spectacular:

It's been quite awhile since I've taken one of these photos, which has prompted me to look up some of my old photos to put together a post on that (coming soon):
The reservoir:
Damage from Hurrican Sandy:
Posing at an overlook:
John Lennon memorial:
Our hotel - about halfway up the very tall building is a building with the words "Essex House" above it. The very tall building under construction was the one with the crane dangling from above during Hurricane Sandy:
A picture of our very nice room:
It was so nice to get away for a night.  Given this was our second trip, we have decided we should make it an annual thing.  Thank you to Deedee and Pops for watching the boys, even with a 4 hour power-outage!
