Brooklyn Bridge -- Aaron's artsy photography
Looking out on downtown from the Brooklyn Bridge
A simple memorial in the midst of what's left of the wreckage of the Towers
All gussied up in the subway....look at those bangs! and those earrings!
We had dinner at the Tavern on the Green....ooooh la la
The chaous that is Times Square. Aaron was enthralled.
Look familiar? :)
St. Patty's Day Parade....this guy looks pretty cool
more parade...these are hand-painted banners...so pretty
We went ice-skating in Central Park (Aaron's idea). Say it with me now...ahhhh...
Look at the view at dusk...in the background is the Plaza Hotel.
The view of downtown Manhattan from Liberty Island
The main room on Ellis Island where all the immigrants were processed, thousands each day!
Aaron finally getting a chance to ride a bull...
Making the pizzas at the authentic little new york italian restaurant "Sals"
On top of the Empire State Building...it was freezing!
The budget "euro-style" hotel we stayed at.
Driving by the Yankee Stadium in our rental car, hoping we could find our way out of the city...
For those who have seen "American Chopper" on the Discovery channel, this is their retail and display store
The guys made a surprise appearance! :)
The amazing Red Lion Inn we stayed at 1 night in Stockbridge, MA, home to Norman Rockwell
Norman Rockwell's studio, outside the Norman Rockwell Museum...check out the bay windows...he painted only by natural light.
Look at all the snow!
The Connecticut river
We got our own separate house to ourselves when we stayed at The Griswold Inn in Essex, Connecticut
Aaron sees the Atlantic Ocean for the first time
