S: Our 2011 New York Vacation
1: On October 18, 2011, our group of eleven travelers departed from the Spokane International Airport on a 2,500 mile plane ride that would take us across the United States to our first stop, Newark, NJ. | Day 1:
2: DAY 2: Our biggest challenge was figuring out how to get around in such a big city.
3: Thankfully, we survived our first encounter with the Subway system.
4: We had a very wet introduction to the Big Apple, fortunately, we had umbrellas, well, most of us at least.
5: THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM
8: ...And at the end of the day, back to New Jersey we go.
9: DAY 3
10: 25 COLUMBIA HEIGHTS
11: THE BROOKLN BRIDGE
12: Bethel Lunch
15: Day 4
18: After touring Walkill we head straight to Patterson for our third and final Bethel tour.
20: Day 5 | All in one day we drove our rental vans back to Jersey from Patterson, settled into a new hotel, took the Subway to China Town, walked through Little Italy and saw a Bloomingdale's store. Quite a day for our tired feet.
23: On Day 6 we were able to see inside the Stanley Theater thanks to some helpful information we received from this friendly group of Witnesses we met on the bus on our way home the night before. They were in town for the Chinese one day assembly which, it turned out, would be held the next day at the Stanley Theater.
26: After seeing the Stanley Theater we went to see a Broadway show....
29: Times Square
32: Day 7
36: THE BIG APPLE
38: DAY 8: Carissa, Mary and Don Schneider flew back to Spokane. The rest of us stuck around for a bit longer and ended up venturing off in two separate groups. We went with Lori Ward to check out Carlos' Bakery in New Jersey and then the Bronx Zoo. Kirk and Marcie went to check out Harlem and the Empire State Building, and probably did some shopping as well.
42: Day 9: Kirk, Marcie, Jeanne and Andy went to see a taping of the David Lettermen Show. While they were doing that, Kelsey and Jared went and explored Times Square.
44: Day 10: Our final day in New York.
45: One final trip to Chinatown for last minute gifts
47: Day 11: We leave New Jersey and make the journey back home. | THE END
