esbldgMany years ago I met a nice family (The Nortons) at Slider & Blues restaurant in Plano, TX.  We became fast friends and have kept in touch since their move to Chappaqua, NY in 1998.  I have been to NY now 4 times and have stayed with them 3 of the 4. 

This last time, a week ago, they flew my wife and I up there so that I could perform at their daughter’s 16th birthday party.  The party was a lot of fun and included many of Emily Norton’s best friends.  These friends should be on a who’s who list of up and coming ivy league students.  I’m sure that she and her friends will make their mark and be successful in what they do.

This was my wife’s first trip to New York so we did the town.  We traveled up and down Manhattan island by train, car, bus, taxi and on foot.  We went to the top of the Empire State Bldg., saw Ground Zero, dined in Times Square and Soho, bumped into a couple of celebrities, saw a Broadway play, and visited the Metropolitan museum.  We had a blast! 

New York offers the best in monumental architecture, plays, museums and fine dining.  Not only that, there is a piece of history around every corner.  If you haven’t been, then go and take a bite out of the Big Apple soon!
