Well we are back from New York. Had a super time and only one low.
The on low -
American Airlines. I have never had such poor service on a flight before. We were lucky to have bulk head seats to and from New York and the flights were early landing both ways. We got offered a drink and meal and then never saw any crew until an hour before landing when we were given a snack or breakfast. The food was horrible. I ate hardly any of it on the outbound flight and then refused it all on the inbound. I have never gotten of a flight feeling hungry before until this flight. I would fly with them again if the price was right but not with my dd. Only as a means to an end if you get my drift. One good point they did not charge us for being over with our luggage allowance
The highs -
The New yorkers were great. Good hotel (hotel newton) and even though we were not in the heart of it all it was only a short subway journey. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The rooms were a little small. My cousin did not like her room at all due to it being small but they upgraded her for free. The subway is cheap and a very easy safe way to get around New york. I would travel on my own on it .
The food was all yummy and i think i gained a few pounds although we walked so much i think this stopped me gaining more.
The most important bit the shopping. Excellent is all i can say. I did not realise how much i had bought until i got home . Woodbury common was good especialy if you like designer wear. I am not into it but got some good bargain especially in Yankee candles. New Jersay Gardens was great. If you like the Florida mall you will love this place. It is hugh and you will be spoilt for choice. Its really easy to get to. Of course the shops in Manhattan are great as well. Most were decorated for christmas.
I never made the chocolate restraunt but did get to Serendipitys and it was worth the 40 minute wait.
I did not keep notes i am afraid but will post photos when i can. Might take a week as busy next week with appointments for dd.
