Sightseeing in New York City…Suggestions Please

RWA 2015

Romance Writers of America National Convention

I am headed to New York City for the Romance Writers of America annual conference next week, but we are going early so we can play tourist.

Got any suggestions and insider tips?

Look for the most Southwestern corner of the state near Lake Erie and that’s where I grew up. About as far from New York City as you could possibly get; geographically, economically, socially … and any other “-ly” you can imagine.

Although I grew up in the State of New York, I couldn’t have been further away from New York City and still have been a resident. Trust me, there is a LOT more to New York State than crowded streets, sky scrapers, and traffic. I could see Canada across Lake Erie every time we went to the closest grocery store which was in Erie, Pennsylvania.

In the very small town where I spent the first eighteen years of my life, there were more milk cows on the corporate farm a mile down the dirt road than registered voters. Back then it took ten hours to reach the outer limits of The Big Apple and my family never traveled there. We always vacationed West (I’m talking Wyoming) or South to Florida.

So I consider this my first trip to New York City.

Help me out here, please.

Got any insider’s tips?
