NYC: April 11

Another beautiful, and WET, day in NYC. We woke up to showers of rain all day today. Hey, we've had such incredible weather so far. I'm not complaining. Mike and I immediately headed over to Times Square to get into the TKTS line for 1/2 price Broadway show tickets. We ended up seeing a new show called "Rock of Ages" which features tons of 80's rock music. It was fun. Tanya and Bryce went over and got tickets for "Phantom of the Opera" and they loved it. We decided to head up to the upper east side to the Guggenheim Museum because of the rain. It was...modern...and interesting. It was fun being there just to see what it was all about. We also walked down Wall Street (umbrellas and all) and saw "The Bull" on Wall Street. Some of us saw it alot better than the others did. Ha! We checked out Brooklyn Bridge, walked around FAO Schwartz Toy Store and saw the life-size piano that Tom Hanks played on in "Big." We were lucky that it had stopped raining when we got out of our shows so we headed downtown to Chinatown and did some fun shopping there, and we met up with Rob and Emily. Then we ate dinner in Chinatown before heading back to Grand Central for some more Juniors Cheesecake and then heading home.
An art display at the Guggenheim: the sound of ice melting. Hey, it's art folks!

I loved this sign: "Daffys:" Clothing Bargains for Millionaires
Bryce is getting to know the Wall Street Bull really well...have you seen the movie "Hitch"?
Walking down Wall Street with our umbrellas trying to not get any more soaked than we already were. But we're true travelers...a little rain clouds will NOT stop us!!!
