Photos of NYC trip

We had an amazingly fun week in New York City this year. You can read the reviews of the 11 shows we saw in 7 days in the previous entry. Here are some pictures during our theatre going.
Eddie loved seeing the closing performance
of "Luck Guy" with Tom Hanks.
Ed can't believe he is on Broadway.

We have been going to NYC during the Fourth of July week for ten years. It is one of the few weeks of the year when some show perform on nontraditional days and times such as Monday evenings, Tuesday/Thursday/Friday matinee and Sunday night.

We could open our own place!

I found it unbelievable that there are still pay phones on every corner in midtown Manhattan. Many intersections had four pay phones, one at each corner. It is real obvious that their purpose isn’t for the convenience of the cellphone lacking person. They are there for the purpose displaying advertising. 

For the first time we stayed in a neighborhood other than Chelsea. Previously we stayed at a friends place near 15th and 7th Avenue or at the Colonial House Inn at 318 West 22nd St. This year we stayed in Hell’s Kitchen at a new place, The Out NYC at 510 West 42nd St.
My husband’s TripAdvisor review: “The relatively new The Out NYC hotel is a terrific and relatively economical place to stay in the heart of the theatre and mid-town gay scenes. The rooms, while not huge, are more than adequate. The beds are super comfy. Bathrooms and showers are large with good storage areas. The sauna, hot tubs, and steam room are usually full of good-looking guys. While this is a straight-friendly hotel (and there were families there), it is especially a wonderful gay-oriented hotel with gay guests from around the world. The bar and restaurant are nice, although the lobby bar does close a bit early during the week. We will definitely return.”
