Honeymoon – Day Three

It was our last day in New York and we still didn’t have the energy to do anything other than sleep.  All of that planning for months prior to the wedding must have taken its toll because we were wiped out.   So instead of touring around the city, we lounged in the hotel room before making our way to the Paley Center Media, a.k.a. the Television-Radio Museum.  We were looking for something low-key and easy to do and what is more low-key then watching TV?

For a mere $10.00 each, we were able to select up to three programs from the 1,000 television shows the Paley Center keeps in its collection.  The collection includes everything from the Johnny Carson Show (1973) to Batman (1943) to Lost (2008).  The CPA, being a fan of bad drama and intrigue, selected the “Who Shot JR” episode from the 80s classic Dallas.

I was suffering from a serious lack of imagination that day so I  went with the first episode of Bewitched

Then we grabbed dinner at a nearby diner before heading to the hotel to change.  (Everyone should eat in a New York diner if they have the chance.  Definitely not for the food, but for the experience.)

It was our last night in the city so we wanted to do something fun (and actually get out of the hotel for a while).  The CPA had bought tickets to see Curtains, the Broadway musical starring David Hyde Pierce (Niles from Frasier) and Debra Monk.  We were really looking forward to the show because we’re both huge Frasier fans and think that David Hyde Pierce can do no wrong.

We were not disappointed – the show was fantastic!  I had no idea that David Hyde Pierce could sing, but he did a great job.  In fact, I really enjoyed the whole thing, which is saying something because I’m not usually a big fan of musicals.  Curtains is the story of a detective who is trying to solve a murder mystery at a theater full of actors and the drama (pun intended) that goes on there.   The musical has received eight Tony Award nominations and David Hyde Pierce won the Tony for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical.  (Unfortunately, Curtains closed in June of 2008, but a new show is said to be in production for 2009.)

After the show, we walked around Times Square for a while.

There’s nothing like standing in the middle of Times Square and watching thousands of people milling about.  If you’re into people watching at all, it is definitely the place to be.  I guarantee you’ll see a little bit of everything. 

But it was getting late so the CPA suggested we take a little walk.   I could tell he had something up his sleeve and assuming whatever it was was just a few blocks away, I said, “sure.”  Those few blocks quickly turned into a few blocks more and before I knew it, we had walked at least two miles.  Finally, we came to what he had been looking for:

Our very own horse and buggy!  Okay, not really, but the surprise did include a horse and buggy, more specifically, a buggy ride around Central Park.  It was actually really nice because the weather was cool and there weren’t a lot of people around.  We rode through the park on a paved road lined with street lamps.  It was very romantic.

And a thoroughly enjoyable way to end the day, our last day in New York. 

Now it was time to get to the hotel and pack because the next leg of our journey was about to begin…

I’ve only been to more upstate NY. Someday I’ll make it back and just spend time in the city.

I am so jealous. WE did the Central Park horse and buggy, and I felt terrible because we had no extra money for a tip!!

Hey Kristina – that’s pretty funny actually. Don’t you hate when that happens? :) And thanks Margie, that’s really sweet of you to say! It really was such a nice visit and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
