Last summer we spent an amazing week touring Manhattan New York. When you finally see what has been part of your life in magazines and movies, and you are actually in Times Square, or on Liberty Island or in Ceinntral Park. It was a very special week.
We stayed at the NoMad, which is short for North of Madison, which is a lovely area on Broadway south of times square. Madison Square Park was just two blocks south and we enjoyed late evenings people watching in that tree covered area. It was delightful. We notice a large building all covered in scaffolding on the westside of the park and now know it is about to become a Marriot Hotel called the Edition. An old insurance company building with a famous clock tower will be the home of a new cosmopolita an hotel, and Brian our son is in training to manage the front desk. We are told the relatives of Marriott employees get some good travel stay discounts and that is good.
Google The Edition Manhattan and see it. We are now excited about a return trip some day soon
