My family and I have been to NYC a lot. I love going there and walking in the hustle and bustle of Manhattan.
In 2011, my husband and I took our youngest to Comic Con there and had a blast. During that time, my sister, Kristen lived in Connecticut, so we’d stay with her and take the 40 minute express train to Grand Central Station. It saved us a lot of money. So, here are some of the pictures we took while there.

Times Square with my sister and son.

We had such a wonderful trip. We were only there for 4 days, but it was worth every minute of it. Also, during this trip, while walking in Times Square, we came around the corner where the Toys R Us is, and were thrust into a sea of people. Well, it happened to be that weekend the Wall Street picketed and every inch of the side walk was filled with bodies and it went on for miles. Well, people were pushing and shoving and I was freaking because of my son being pushed around by adults and people wanting to fight to get out of the crowd. So, before I cracked someone’s skull for messing with my kid, we had to escape up a side street, once we got to one, and get out of dodge. I hate crowds and people in my space so that part of the trip was NOT fun. The picture below was actually in a less crowded portion of the picketing, but as you can see, both sides of the street were packed with people.

So, which place do you love to return to over and over again?
