A Couple Days in NYC

Filed under: Music,Places — Cory @ 7:12 pm

Whew, the past two days have been crazy.

We started off yesterday morning by going to the Mandolin Brothers Guitar and Mandolin shop in Staten Island. This place is completely amazing, they only carry the best instruments out there. I’ve got some pictures of the store that I will post later. Several walls of mandolins, Gibson, Collings, etc, and the guitar selection was even bigger. They had walls of dobro’s, banjos, everything. I was amazed.

After that we took the Staten Island Ferry into the city. Alana’s friend Mickey was our tour guide for the day, so it was nice to have someone who could show us around. We went to the SOHO Apple Store, which was really cool as well. Then we went to lots of other places that I can’t remember right now, but it was all very impressive.

Today we woke up around 10:30 and made it out around noon to get lunch and make our way to The Metropolitan Museum of Art. It’s really amazing how much great art they have there.

After that we went to Times Square and walked around, a lot. I’m completely exhausted now, but we are about to go to dinner with Alana’s aunt and her family.

Drivers in New York are still crazy.
