Hey, I back from my New York City vacation. I was staying in Manhattan at the Le Parker Meridien on 57 St. I've got plenty of pictures to show you all, but I have to sort through them first. I also have video footage of Spiderman 3 which is being shot in NY this month.

I'm going back to sleep now, my plane arrived very late at night and i'm still tired from the days I had to stand outside tv studios at 4AM.

Did you tell me you were going to be there?! Huh?! I'll be very upset if I find out our trips to NYC overlapped and I didn't even know you were there. :grumpy: Did you visit the new Apple Store? :biggrin: :tongue2:

heartless, I didn't know you lived in NYC.

jimmydelgado777, it was expensive, but it was only my sister and I who went so we could splurge a little.

When you were in Times Square, the Marquis Mariott there has a great rotating restaurant/lounge called "The View". Did you know of it? It's a bit pricey to eat at, but you buy one drink and you can get a fantastic view in the rotating lounge. My wife and I used to go there all the time to just kick back and enjoy a couple of drinks.

Nice pictures overall. Is that bridge behind the Chrysler building one of those famous ones in NY?
It's the 59th Street bridge.

"Slow down, you move too fast.
You got to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobble stones.
Looking for fun and feelin' groovy."

Still cluelss. :uhh: But before you give me another hint to work on, let me say that I'm not from the US, and so, may not be familiar with what you're trying to say. :smile:

Neither am I!

It's not so much that you're from the wrong geographical location, more that you're from the wrong era in time.

It's before my time too, but not that much before.

Edit: I should have said "different" instead of "wrong". Sorry.

Anyway, what was that you were trying to tell me in the first place?

"59th Street Bridge Song" is the title of a *very* popular Simon & Garfunkel song that is also sometimes known as "Feelin' Groovy". Since I have never been to to New York, it is what my (warped) mind associates with the term "59th street bridge".

I've never heard of it or of them. Therefore it's not "very popular".

Nice pics Ddurado,

I assume that it is 3 or 4 of you and 1 of your sister :grumpy:

Next time, more of her! :!!)

Never heard of Simon and Garfunkel! Never heard of The 59th street bridge song!

Kids these days :rolleyes:

That's probably why he didn't post more of her...he didn't want to have to beat up all the young guys here who'd be falling all over her when they saw her photo. She is very pretty.
