Times Square – New York


When we heard that  Priscilla Queen of the Desert was playing

at the Palace Theatre on Broadway, we knew a trip to New York was on!

This show is sooooooooooooooooo much fun and represents the highest of camp.


………….and we got a poster signed by the entire cast!

We booked a room at the Hilton and were lucky enough to get a room on the top floor with a most fantastic view.

We looked out upon the New Year’s Eve ball

and so enjoyed magnificent views of the city……….

with the view downward just as wonderful

hold on Dorothy we are not in Kansas anymore……

Did you know that Times Square was formerly known as Longacre Square, until it was renamed in April 1904

 after The New York Times moved its headquarters to the newly erected Times Building,

which is now called One Times Square.

We so enjoyed the lights – sounds – most of the smells and the excitement of Times Square…………..as we walked about I could not help but think of Rebecca Romijn Stamos as she said:
“I still can’t believe that I walk down the runway once a year in high heels and underwear for Victoria’s Secret. And that this is worthy of being broadcast on the Sony JumboTron in Times Square.”

so much to see

oh how I wished to stay a week and see all the wonderful shows………….

We had some wonderful Adana Kabobs at Dervish a marvie Turkish Restaurant in the Theatre District……..

We took a night cruise to see The Statue of Liberty and enjoy the New York Skyline.


What a wonderful gift from our dear friends – the country of France, without whom we would not exist

It was a marvelous visit and went by much too quickly!

    the NYC pics are stunning; for those of us who as mere mortals cannot afford the top floor of the Hilton, it is a view only you could have shown us. The city’s energy jumps off the page.
    We miss you both; mainly we miss your Chefdom. Mer

  2. I thought I would never like going to a place like New York City, but after seeing your pictures and the things you said….well it has changed my mind, would love to go one day! Thanks for broadening my horizons!

  3. From tip top to bottom, what a great-looking post! I keep scrolling up and down. Your room had quite the view! I loved the historical tidbit about the Times Square name change. I miss New York AND the Bartoldi’s wonderful Statue of Liberty. I lived on the tip of Staten Island and worked in Manhattan, so I got to see her every day and night. Sometimes at sunset! And speaking of spectacular views, did you promenade along the High Line?! It’s amazing! I was there in January and it was packed with walkers and talkers! Theadora (The show also looks fabulous!)

  4. I’ve never seen the Statue of Liberty at night. That must be an impressive sight to see. I know you must have had a great trip. NYC is so much fun.
