Wow!!! Fantastic pic's Norma! :)

 Any more info on those fullsheet bakery pizzas?
It's an Earth food. They are called Swedish meatballs. It's a strange thing, but every sentient race has its own version of these Swedish meatballs! I suspect it's one of those great universal mysteries which will either never be explained, or which would drive you mad if you ever learned the truth.

Trinity,

Thanks for saying you like the pictures.  :) I still have some more to post.  I don't have anymore information on those fullsheet bakery pizzas at Sullivan St. Bakery, but I also would like to make some pizzas like those.  They were nice and crunchy on the bottom and delicious in taste.  If I had more time, before I left NYC, I would have bought more of them, but they weren't open when I left.  I wish someone could help make this kind of pizza.  I never have tried anything like them before.

BrickStoneOven,

Are you kidding?   :-D  That is way to funny if the naked Cowboy would be running for anything. If I ever find where I have the pictures I took of the Naked Cowboy, I will post them under this thread.

end of pictures.  I wonder why the Empire State Building was light up like a Crayola Crayon last night.  ??? It was more colors than I have ever seen before.  It was lite up in all the primary colors.

The last I heard, he had filed a multi million dollar lawsuit against Hershey's for copyright infringement.  Maybe he won the lawsuit & is laying in his underwear playing his guitar on his own private island.

If anyone is interested the UNICEP Snowflake on Fifth Avenue and 57th Street in New York in the two pictures I posted marks the beginning of the holiday giving season and exists as a beacon of hope, peace and compassion for children around the world. The New York Snowflake, donated by the Stonbely family, was engineered and entirely handcrafted by designer Ingo Maurer and his team in Germany, and is 23 feet in diameter, over 28 feet in height, weighs more than 3,300 pounds and uses 16,000 Baccarat crystal prisms.

Sorry, I didnít get a better picture of the UNICEP Snowflake, but we were driving in the car.

Thanks for the pictures and recap Norma.....some good snaps in there as well. Always love seeing pics of NYC and hearing more stories....they never get old.

FYI, next time you are going to Queens, more often than not taking the Holland or Lincoln and cutting across the city are not your best bet.

Taking either the Outer Bridge Crossing (from NJ) to the Verrazano Brigde or using the Goethels Bridge (from NJ) to get to the Verrazano Bridge and then using the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (BQE) is often the faster option. If you must get to Queens via cutting across Manhattan, the Queens-Midtown Tunnel can be a good bet.

Don't know if you utilize them, but on the AM dial of the radio you should pre-set both 880 and 1010 into your AM dial. 880 does traffic on the eights and 1010 on the tens of every minute. By exit 9 or 10 on the NJ turnpike, I religiously work these stations back and forth. Traffic into NYC can change at a moments notice, and these two stations have saved me from more than one backup due to an accident.

Sounds like a great day. Thanks again for sharing! --K  :)

pizzablogger,

Thanks for saying you liked some of the pictures and recap.  I never get tired of NYC, even though I donít get there very much. 

My oldest daughter did live in Queens for awhile and came back home many times.  She has tried different ways of going back and forth, and usually it doesnít take as long as yesterday to get to NYC.  She drives up 78 from Allentown.  That is about the shortest way from our area.  We did take the NJ turnpike different times and that way is longer for us.  We even tried to come back to our area from Brooklyn, down though Staten Island and that took longer and then we also had to pay the toll for Verrazano Bridge, plus the tolls for the turnpike. 

Thanks for telling about what channels to use on the radio dial.

Norma, great pictures.
The photo of Carnegie hall brought back great memories for me, my wife and I stayed right across the road in May 2005 @ the Salisbury hotel for our honeymoon.
The first time we went to NY was Christmas 2003, NY is a magical place at Christmas.

Paul,

Thanks for saying the pictures were great.  I only have a Sony cheaper Cyber-shot camera and wish I could take better pictures.  There are so many pictures to be taken in NY.  I looked into many pizza businesses and just wanted to see what their pizzas looked like. 

Glad to hear the photo of Carnegie Hall bought back memories for you.  :)  They are doing construction there now. You are right that NY is a magical place at Christmas.  I might get to go to NYC again before Christmas and if I do I will take some more pictures of pizza places I can visit and also how NYC looks at Christmas.
