Instead of going back to Donna's,
we hung out on 46th near the Richard Rodgers theater
because President Obama was arriving for the production of "Hamilton."
Donna said it was a special fundraising performance.
|The police were preparing for the President's arrival.|
(They actually blocked off the street and made everyone leave
before the President's entourage arrived).
|"Hamilton" is the "hottest" show in town.|
Note the security and police guarding the theater.
A canopy was set up to conceal the President's arrival.
|We watched the security build-up for an hour!|
|One of the many security vehicles along the street.|
|We had a great dinner with "Flash." She worked for Fox News|
for many years and has met a lot of "celebrities" (besides herself).
She has many stories to tell!
On our way back to Donna's, we decided to hop a tour
of Lower Manhattan
|This 1925 West 32nd Street skybridge used to connect Gimbels with an annex.|
It is no longer used.
|Ellis Island is in the background|
|An American flag was flying from the construction crane.|
|The Statue of Liberty greets the shoppers |
along the shore of the Hudson River
|The tour bus approaches Times Square|
|The Peace Tower|
Our second stop on Monday was at the Intrepid museum
(we were happy to stop after walking about a mile from Donna's office).

We had breakfast with Donna and Philippe (friend of cousin Rich Betor)
on Sunday morning before heading to Mass at St. Patrick's
|Brass doors at the entrance to St. Patrick's Cathedral|

We flew into NY on Saturday, Oct. 31st. Then we ran errands with Donna.
Donna took us to see "An American in Paris" on Broadway in the afternoon.
After the theater, Pat Cloherty took us to dinner at the 21 Club.
|Pat had Halloween masks for everyone! (Donna, Bob, and Diane)|
|Donna and Bob|
|Ellen Fleysher (Flash), John Shley, Pat's Peace Corps friend,|
and Pat Cloherty. John had a chicken farm in New Jersey.
He told some great stories about chicken farming in Brazil.
