SUNDAY 26th JUNE 2016 - MOVED DOWNTOWN, VISITED JOEL at YONKERS
We decided to move to a different location in New York City to make it easier to see other features without having to catch the subway everywhere.
We chose Downtown (Financial District) and moved to Hampton Inn on Pearl Street. The taxi dropped us off outside the Hotel, we went in and discovered that they had no record of our booking! Would you believe there are TWO Hampton Inn's in Pearl Street. Wonder how that happened...???
Once at the right place we couldn't move in for a couple of hours. We left our bags in the lobby and explored the immediate area. Had breakfast at a beautiful french patisserie Le Pain Quotidien. Food was superb.
Once we settled in our room we caught the subway to Van Courtland Park where we were met by fellow Guzzi rider Joel. We drove to Yonkers, met Sandy, his wife, settled in for a great chat but the two furry members of the household wanted to have the last say. Luke and Lucy were really nice dogs despite their constant chatter. I did enjoy his tin guard dog on the front lawn though.
