New York, New York

I received the most wonderful invitation from my sissy Momo. She was going to take Charlotte, Charybdis, and Scylla New York City for some shopping and wanted to know if I would like to join her. I immediately said yes and plans were made for shopping, theatre, and catching up with our other sister, Asta.

Our hotel reservations were made for us to stay at the Ritz-Carlton overlooking Central Park. This hotel has one of the most prestigious addresses in the world. Offering some of the most spectacular views of Central Park from guest rooms and suites. Wanting to spend more time with us Asta stayed at the hotel with us while the younger kitties stayed at Charlotte's cousin whose apartment was also across from Central Park. Asta

Central Park is a large public park, 843 acres, in Manhattan. With about twenty-five million visitors annually, Central Park is the most visited city park in the United States, and its appearance in many movies and television shows has made it famous.

Sassy, Asta, and Momo shop at Tiffany's and find many things to purchase.

Tiffany's flagship store (since 1940) is located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street in Manhattan. It is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The polished granite exterior is well known for its tiny window displays. The store has been the location for a number of films including Breakfast at Tiffany's and Sweet Home Alabama.

Back at the Ritz-Carlton and ready to head out for a night at the theatre. Our formal wear and street wear were selected by Momo from the current season's collections of Diane von Furstenberg and Oscar de la Renta

Running into an old friend of Sassy's, Donald, we stop to take our photos together. After the photo session Donald treated us all to dinner at the top of the Trump Towers, what a beautiful view of the city.

The George Gershwin Theatre was originally named the Uris. When it opened in 1972 it was the first large Broadway theatre to be built since the Earl Carroll in 1931. The Gershwin Theatre has largest seating capacity of any Broadway theatre (excepting the New York State Theatre and the City Center). It was designed for lavish musicals and has also been successful as a showcase house for personal appearances and dance companies.

Leaving the theatre after a magnificent performance.

Wicked is a musical telling the story of Elphaba, the future Wicked Witch of the West and her relationship with Glinda, the Good Witch of the North. The plot is set mostly prior to Dorothy's arrival from Kansas.

Visiting Rockefeller Center

After a good night's rest we all got up early and met at the Rockefeller Center where we had breakfast overlooking the ice rink. Rockefeller Center is a complex of nineteen commercial buildings covering 22 acres between 48th and 51st Streets. Built by the Rockefeller family, it is located in the center of Midtown Manhattan, spanning between Fifth Avenue and Seventh Avenue. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987.

Charlotte had the great idea of going over to the Today Show after we had breakfast. We were so fortunate to get a front row view of Matt, Meridith, and Al when they were outside. There was a problem that day when Ann lost her voice just before air time. Needing someone to do the news segment Matt picked someone from the crowd to do it for them . . .

. . . what an honor to be chosen to do this but I must say I was really nervous. After the program a group photo was taken, Meridith had to leave early to pick up her little girl from school and is missing from the photo.

Next on the schedule was our guest appearance on The View. It seems that Barbara Walters had heard about the blogging going on in the kitty/doggie world and was interested in discussing it on the program. She also was interested in the NOMSS and how cats and dogs could be sisters and brothers. With all of these subjects to discuss the full hour of the show was needed to give all the facts out for the viewers to learn about.

Checking out of the Carlton-Ritz and getting ready to head for home.

After a busy morning it was time to head back to the hotel and pack up and get over to the airport. Our short stay in the city was coming to and end and it was time to go home. What fun it was to visit the city, see our sissy Asta, shop, sight see, meet old friends, go to the theatre, and get a taste of the television industry.

Heading for home we all settle into our comfy seats and say good bye to wonderful New York City. I don't know about Momo or the young kitties but I am already planning my next trip.

Be sure to head over to Momo's and Asta's place to check out what they had to say about the trip.
