Visitors #4

Two weekends ago we had the last of our visitors, this time from not so far away, San Francisco. SF Girl plays netball in a West Coast rep team and Netball America had arranged a West Coast – East Coast game to be played following a WNBA game at Madison Square Garden – such an honour!

So we tromped them around New York in between practice and games, doing some of the same stuff, and some different stuff – being practically American themselves now there were some things they didn’t really need to see.

The run down:

Whistle-stop one day tour of: Madison Square park, Financial District, Fika, Central Park, Iron Man 2 (at the most ginormous digital picture and sound theatre we’ve ever been to in Times Square), Shake Shack.

While SF Girl was at netball we took our Chef Friend around some old and new (even for us) spots: Saturdays Surf, Little Italy, Katz’s Deli, Bryant Park (where I left the boys having a beer while I went for a wander), saw American Idiot on Broadway and Times Square.

A bit of a rest day for the rest of us on the netball day: it was a pretty cool outing to Madison Square Gardens and being a women’s game of basket ball it was a bit slower so I didn’t get too lost, the netball was fast (with an American commentator trying to explain what was going on) and we had seats 6 rows from the front! SF Girl is WA. The Mister had great fun with the noise-makers.

On their last day we finished up with some more of the usual spots: Chelsea Market for breakfast, the High Line, Central Park, 5th Avenue and a parting view from our roof.
