Have you ever been in the big apple?
December 6, 2016 12:29pm CST
I want to know what it was like when you took that family tour of New York City. The many places to see. Broadway, Central Park, Those street side hot dog stands and all the things that New Yorkers just take for granted but everyone else envies. And if you were ever in New York, did you get to see Donald Trump? Besides that, have you ever taken a cab ride in the big apple?

My husband and I visited NY many years ago. We went during my Easter holidays in April. It was the coldest Easter we ever experienced! Snow-ploughs moved in front of the buses to clear the streets. We had to buy woollen caps and gloves. This was before the Donald entered the stage.

I have only been in upstate NY, but not the city. My husband, as regional director of public affairs for the U.S. Dept. of Labor, spent two weeks at the 911 site right after the attack. It was an awful experience for him.

I have done everything you mentioned in your post, and more! Although I live in Florida, in my younger days I would fly up to NYC for weekend trips as much as I could. Back then flights were so cheap that it didn't cost a pretty penny to spend a weekend in the Big Apple. And yes, I did meet Trump in NYC, it was back in the 90's, and it was at the Plaza Hotel adjacent to Central Park. I actually bumped into him quite by accident, and he was very nice and gracious. He even chatted with me for a few minutes when I told him I was from West Palm Beach, Florida (he has a mansion in Palm Beach). I've also met singer Billy Idol, and comedian/actor Billy Crystal walking the streets of New York! It's a great city. I haven't taken my kids there yet, but we've been talking about it for the last couple of years.
