Great pix from your NYC stay. To me, NYC is a "theme park" with its very own adventures!
I love that you all found The Meatball Shop
location that is right in my neighborhood (looks like you were at the locale on Amsterdam Ave around 81st St?). Even tho I am only 2 avenues away, on West End Av, because the eatery is part of a chain of restaurants, I'd sadly assumed the food would be "meh," but now, reading your raves, I realize that I've missed out on a good thing in my own backyard! Any special suggestions? Favorite 'balls' you might recommend?
(The parmesan cream sauce sounds crazy good!)
Here's a fun suggestion for your next visit. If you're in that area again, right across the street from the Meatball Shop, you'll find Luke's Lobster
- a casual place that makes the BEST lobster rolls in the city. It's really small inside, so it's fun to take the lobster rolls to Central Park (or Riverside Park) for a gourmet picnic! (And have the peanut butter and jelly crepes for dessert!)
Thanks again for those great pix, reminding me of all the stuff I should be getting out and doing in my own "home park."
P.S. Kudos for getting your backstage tour of Matilda. A VERY excellent adventure!
P.P.S. To those who rode the Cyclone - is it still as wild 'n crazy as ever?!?
