New York, it was more than just Martha Stewart…

Published by on

It was way more than just Martha and #thetechshow, however, I did get a few up close and personal shots, so I thought I’d share those first.

martha stewart and david pogue

Here we have Martha and David Pogue of the New York Times and author of the book, ‘The World According to Twitter’.

David: Martha, don’t turn away from me, you’re ravishing!
Martha simpers: Oh David, stop it, you’re making me blush!

Well maybe, I made that up, but it could happen. Maybe … or maybe not.

Here is another of Martha and Chris Hughes the billionaire 20-something founder of facebook. She may have mentioned him poking her (really). She also told him he looked 13. HA! He has the propensity to turn all shades of red. Poor kid man!

martha stewart and nick douglas

Here is another, with Martha and Nick Douglas author of ‘Twitter Wit‘.

Nick: Look Martha, here’s a photo of me naked. What do have to say about that in less than 140 characters?
Martha: OH MY!

OK OK, enough kidding around! The Martha Stewart taping was too much fun. You can take a look at a few more Martha photos on my flickr stream here:

I have to tell you … I LOVE NYC.

central park, nyc

I walked limped from my midtown hotel to Central Park. I think this is my favourite photo from the trip.

central park
I loved Central Park, even though I only saw a fraction of it.

portrait of a man by rembrandt ... but it looks like
From the park, I did a quick tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I started with the Dutch masters. I know Michael Douglas is old and all, but who would have imagined he’d be old enough to sit for Rembrandt?!

this made me homesick
I got a little homesick when I saw this. Then I realized, I’d probably end up like this poor woman if I take any more trips without Mr. MK. Don’t tell him about this, he’ll kill me ban me from the internet forever.

empire state building
This is the Empire State Building.

empire state builiding
It looks way better from further away.

empire state building from
It’s spectacular at night from ‘the top of the rock’.

time square
This of course is Times Square. It’s full of hustle and bustle day and night. I loved it.

On my last day there, I did the tourist thing and hopped a red double-decker bus to take in the sights. It was gray, cloudy and cold.

flat iron building
This is the Flat Iron Building, we have a similar building in Edmonton, I’ll have to get a photo of it too.

the village, nyc
This is an old church in the ‘the village’.

broadway, soho, nyc
This was taken on Broadway, in Soho, looking downtown. I love all the old building in New York.

Speaking of Broadway, I went to the Broadway Musical ‘HAIR’. It was fabulous!

a building, nyc
I think I might like to live here.

There were so many things I got to see, but not do …

whizzing by the brooklyn bridge
The bus whizzed by the Brooklyn Bridge.

ground zero, nyc
and Ground Zero. The magnitude of this site, it’s unbelievable.

very old and the very new, nyc

It’s such a great combination of the very old and the very new, just like in this photo!

One of these days, I’ll go back. I’ve got a huge long list of things to do and see and eat.

Hey Kim, look like you had a fabulous time in NY! I knew you would love it! Such great photos of the city’s attractions. I love Times Square, it’s just such a fun and bustling place. The Martha Stewart taping would have been INCREDIBLE, what a great opportunity you had to be there.

Oh my, NYC is so beautiful. Empire State looks better at night. And I still can’t see what’s special about Madison Square. I’d pick Central Park over it anytime. :D
