Nick with two of the Maui Inline Hockey League's professional stars!


We have made several trips to New York City and every one has been fun and exciting. We have found the people of NYC to be very friendly and helpful. They are very busy and always in a hurry, but when you get a chance to talk to them, they are some of the nicest, most helpful people you would want to meet!

Our trips to the Big Apple always include some games at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. There is no better place to watch baseball! It is such a beautiful outdoor stadium and so much tradition! An added blessing is that when we see them play in person, they usually win!

We also have some favorite restaurants that we like to get to every trip. One is Pepe Giallo in Chelsea. It has great food and a fun atmosphere. We also like to stop a couple of times at De Robertis' Pasticerria. They have the very best cannolis, a favorite of the late "Scooter", Phil Rizzuto. We found out that this was one of the places he would go for cannolis!

We love the crowds at Time Square, all night long! Central Park is huge and very well kept. The museums are great and there are plenty of things to see and do. We've conquered the subways but would like to stay more in the middle of the city next time. We're already planning our next trip!

Have a great day,
