Mike, you are making me homesick! As much as I do love Boston, NYC is where I wish I could be. I love Midtown, but used to live in the Village on Bleeker.

Your photos are wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing them.

The Landmark! I'm so glad you had the chance to visit there!

The Belvedere has a good "street rep." I hope it proved to be a good experience for you throughout your stay. And you aren't kidding that "hotel room" is a mansion by NYC standards!

You surely do pack a lot in one day.

Looking forward to reading the remaining installments of your report.

Oh! And happy birthday to Mrs. Mike!
