A New York Minute

According to the Urban Dictionary..
'A New York Minute is an instant... or as Johnny Carson once said, it's the interval between a Manhattan traffic light turning green and the guy behind you honking his horn.  It is a reference to the frenzied and hectic pace of New Yorkers' lives.' 

And what a pace it is! 
I am in New York with three of my four fast moving kids having a few 
 New York Minutes of our own...

What's the saying? Girl's just wanna have fun?
My Miss Claire has had a major crush on David Beckham for as long as I can remember.
I lost count of how many posters adorn her bedroom walls.You can imagine the excitement 
when she saw a New York bus featuring nothing but David. I was only sorry to have 
missed his head on the top image but managed to make up for it in the one under it. 
As you can see, Claire is not phased one bit...she is just happy to be there!

In one New York Minute we managed to snap a few pics.
Claire caught this cyclist waiting on a traffic light...

and turned to capture this scene around the corner...

How could one resist...from Henri Bendel's window,
a New York Fashion Minute.

 It wasn't until after uploading this shot onto my computer 
that I discovered another little friend peeking out from under... shopping patience. :)

There is an abundance of red, white and blue around New York
in the shape of the American flag...flying proudly at Rockefeller Center.

On to Central Park, where carriages await.

We 'lunched' in the spirit of Eloise at The Plaza Hotel. Our waiter told us of
the recent renovations and the uncovering of this magnificent 1,800 square foot 
stained-glass lay light. It had been covered in the past by a ceiling to allow 
for air conditioning. It has returned to it's former glory and it is stunning. 

Yours truly covered herself in the hotel curtains this evening to capture
this view from our window, the city of lights...

and it is from hear that I say goodnight...in anticipation
of a New York Dream.

Best wishes to one and all and to all a good night!
