I never get tired of the city.

New York City that is. Thursday night we had the chance to go see Willie Nelson in concert at Radio City Music Hall. We decided to take our car in because we thought our son could sleep in the car on the way home so he wouldn't be too tired for school the next day. It turned out to be cheaper & quicker than taking the train because I found a coupon on the Internet. For a mere $10, we could park our car in a parking garage close to Radio City. That was probably the best bargain I have ever gotten in NYC!The traffic always amazes me when you first drive out of the tunnel into the streets of Manhattan. The other vehicles around you have a tendency to sandwich your car as everyone jockeys for position to get to the street they want to turn on too. It's sick. My son & I always laugh at this point. We are always surprised that we never get side swiped.This is the inside of Radio City from one of the top floors looking down into the Hall's lobby. Here is Willie & Company on stage. Some people say he talks his way through his songs. It isn't the same as listening to his Cd's, that's for sure. But it's wonderful live music, the kind I could listen to forever. Nora Jones even came out to sing with him, which was a real treat.
Go here for more about Willie Nelson. If you click on any of the above pictures, you'll be able to enlarge each photograph for more detail.

Willie Nelson! I love his music, and Nora Jones- that's like having dessert with dinner! Glad you had a wonderful evening in the Big Apple.

Hmmm, I think I might know those people in the 2nd photograph... The city, the place of a million dreams but only one parking space!

awesome photos! I love how shiny everything looks in the top photograph.

I'm glad you had a good time and made it out in one piece, lol.

I like the second photo the most with the view of Radio City, but the third one's really creative.
