I recently returned from a 10 day Tour de New York.  That is me to your left looking cool in Central Park at the West 88th Street entrance to the park.  Thank you Keith for taking this picture of me along with the featured image panoramic view of the Manhattan sky line from the Brooklyn Bridge.  I am getting ahead of myself so lets start back at how Tour de New York started.

When we  moved to Texas 11 years ago Keith was our neighbor and just a wee boy.  As he heard about our adventures returning to Upstate New York and seeing the center of the earth, New York City, on television, Keith would say I want to go to New York.  Four years ago when Keith graduated from high school and was off to college, I told him that when he graduated from college I would take him to New York.  Not just New York City, but the whole state.  Keith graduated from college so it was pay up time for me and here is the latest adventure of the narrator of this blog.

We stayed at the Hotel Pennsylvania, right across the street from Penn Station and Madison Square Garden.  When we got to room 1371 and I looked out the window this is what I saw.

On that first night we had New York style pizza and walked about the hotel before calling it a day.  Keith took this picture and put it on snap chat.

On Friday we started our adventure of riding the subway.  With subway map in hand we went south on the Red Line to Battery Park.  At Battery Park we took the Staten Island Ferry so that a closer view of the Statue of Liberty could be done.
