More sight-seeing in New York

This is the third of my four-part photo album of Reggie’s trip to New York

The very first day the River East Collegiate group arrived in New York, they went on a walking tour of the city that afternoon.  They saw Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, etc. 

The following days, when they were not at the Jazz at the Lincoln Center, they were walking through Midtown and Manhattan.  It was on the second day when they dropped by the Today Show on NBC.  Reggie and his friend Clay were on camera for about four seconds.  I missed it.  I was watching Good Morning America on ABC. 

They also went to the Ed Sullivan Theatre where the Late Show with David Letterman is taped.  And if you watch this show, you must be familiar with Rupert from Hello Deli.  Reggie got to meet Rupert and even took a video clip and they had a picture together too.

They also went to the Grand Central Terminal, The New York Public Library, Central Park, Times Square, Ground Zero, Ellis Island, etc.

When they were starting to line up to go to the ferry that would bring them to Ellis Island to see the Statue of Liberty, there was this street musician who was then starting to pack up.  When he learned that the group was from Canada, he stayed and played “O Canada,” our national anthem, much to the delight of the group.

You can see more pictures at My New York Photo Album.

    Thank you ernesto, chase and sesame for the comments.

    I guess some of us love New York and some of us hate New York. We all have our own personal reasons for liking and hating a place. And I hope nobody takes offense on any of the comments. We are just all being honest with our opinions here. Peace everyone and have a nice weekend.🙂

    Major Tom, they didn’t watch a taping of David Letterman nor did they get to see him and get his autograph. They just passed by the Ed Sullivan Theater on their walking tour.

    Ladybug, I’m glad you like our pictures.🙂 Thanks.

    Thanks, ipanema.🙂

    Belle, thank you. Yes, I think he’s also got an eye for photography. I’m sure your daughter is having the time of her life there in NY and probably also clicking away.🙂
