Empire State of Mind (NYC Part 2)

Continuing our story, when I left you yesterday we were at the Top of the Rock. In today's post, we still are...
Stella was starting to get a little tired and her mood was deteriorating...
But it was nothing that a few tickles...
And some time upside down couldn't cure...
See?  All smiles again...
Photography by Damon and his orangutan arms...


There was a strange room on one of the observation decks with an interactive light display.  The idea was for you to move around the room and the lights would react to your movements.  Stella loved this idea.  Pawpaw liked it too...


Even Cille enjoyed those magical lights...
Rockefeller Center was all decked out for the Fourth...
We saw Saks 5th Avenue!  Unfortunately, it was closed, so we couldn't go on a shopping spree...
This is St. Patrick's Cathedral...

Atlas with the weight of the world on his shoulders...
I am holding up the number 5 because we are on 5th Avenue.  Get it?
Inside the cathedral...
Remember I said earlier that the stroller would be very important?  We stayed on the go while we were on this trip, so naturally the schedule was a little taxing for a three year old and a one year old.  The girls took turns napping in the stroller.  This time it was Stella's turn...
She was knocked out.  We carried her up and down flights of stairs and pushed her through crowded streets with blaring horns and sirens.  She never even flinched...
Speaking of crowded streets, Times Square, everyone...
See the ball up top?
FDNY!
So much to see...
And two posts left to do it! (Actually three, but the last one's a surprise!)

so exciting. I just can't get over how many people and how many buildings there are. I think I would start to get anxious. Did you get to see Daniel Radcliffe's show? Cant wait to see more images.
