Our Last day in New York City

It is almost 9 am and both Lynda and Colleen are still asleep.  We had a late night last night so we were sleeping in today.  Yesterday we went on a Movie tour of Central Park.  It was really interesting even though I had not seen most of the movies that were talked about.  The young lady who did the tour was very knowledgeable and friendly.  She had been in an episode of Law & Order SVU. 

After the tour we walked down 5th Avenue for a few blocks, then took the subway to Madison Square Gardens so we could get our bearings and know where we were going to see the hockey game.  We went into the Gardens and asked one of the gate keepers where to go to eat and found the nice restaurant he suggested.  Harrington's restaurant has booths that look out onto the street and we were lucky enough to get one.  We had lots of time before the hockey game so we went back into the gardens.

Me with Mark Staal.

Mark is from my home town of Thunder Bay.  There are 4 Staal brothers all playing hockey in the NHL.  The hockey game was great even though Montreal lost to New York Rangers.

Today we leave for home at 4:30 so we will have one last trip into the city and then board our plane to go home.
