Jun 27, 1990 - Fun in New York

We had a wonderful day exploring Central Park by a horse drawn carriage. In New York City, horse-drawn carriages are a symbol of pre-modern life before the advent of motor vehicles.

Jun 24, 1990 - Omni Berkshire Place

We are staying at the beautiful Omni Berkshire Place. It is only 2 blocks from of Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall and 10 minutes from Central Park by foot. It features on-site dining and a sundeck. We don’t have our car so this hotel was the perfect choice for us. We had a wonderful dinner at the Fireside Restaurant. It is part of the Manhattan Berkshire Place, serving contemporary American cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and they have 24-hour room service. :-) Let the fun begin.
