Traveling by bus to New York City in the spring will be fun, although I imagine the movement of the bus will lull many to sleep. The only time I have been to New York , was pre-kids, years ago with my honey. Being a travel agent in the past offered some great opportunities. Flying to New York on a red eye, spending one night in the Waldorf Astoria, seeing a Broadway Show before flying home on a red eye, was just one one perk. This time will be another whirlwind of activity. Visiting Ground Zero and the Statue of Liberty are new to me. Stepping onto Ellis Island, where my Great Grandparents stepped, will be very special, as will seeing another Broadway play.
