Times Square

We had a blast today. We took the Long Island Rail Road from Farmingdale into Penn Station, NYC. After getting off at Penn Station we took the subway to the World Trade Center site and took a peak at ground zero and all the construction going on. Next, we headed with Keith's coworker to a Belgium Chocolate Factory called Leonidas. It has the WORLD'S best chocolate. We bought some and hopefully will have some to share when we get home.

Then it was on to Canal Street to look at all the knock off purses, scarves, shoes, watches, etc. It was just like being in the movies. We were first approached by a gentleman selling Luis Vuitton purses which Larry wanted to get for his girlfriend. This man ran to his supplier and pulled us around a corner to look at the purses in a garbage sack. Larry bought one. Next as we are headed down the street an asian woman says.."You want Coach, Prada?" I'm like yes! She takes us half a block where we meet up with her sister who takes us around the corner and into a building. We head down the stairs into a basement type area that was really creepy and smelly. She unlocks a door in a hallway and low and behold there they are......Coach, Dooney & Burke, Prada & Channel purses. It was so cool and exhilirating plus a bit scary since this was at night. I am looking for a Coach bag to carry my laptop in and they didn't have any big enough so Keith and I will go back on Friday and try to find me one. Otherwise, I'm going back and buying one of the purses I saw from the asian lady.

We walked through China Town, Little Italy and finally took a cab to Times Square where we ate at Planet Hollywood. After a good meal we went into the Hershey's store, M&M's World and the largest Toys R' Us I've ever seen. It had a ferris wheel in it. Lots of lego creations that my son and nephew would love.

There is still so much to see but I wanted to add a few pictures before we go to bed for my sweet children. Stay tuned....
