Wow!! We Were Bombed On Our First Night In New York

Wow!! We Were Bombed On

Our First Night In New York

 

I know it's not unusual to go out and get bombed in New

York after a long flight from the Cali. But this type of

BOMB was a little more than we bargained for.

 

 

 

 

This was the scene that greeted us literally steps from our hotel

entrance. Indeed a very exciting reception wouldn't you say.

After this what else is there?

 

We had just arrived from California and were Ubering our way into Manhattan when we heard what seemed to be dozens of sirens closing in all around and coming in behind us.

 

They just kept coming and coming. There must have been dozens of them and it seemed like they were literally escorting us right to the doorstep of our hotel which is the New York Edition at 5 Madison in the Chelsea district.

 

Our Uber ride had to drop us off a block away (actually in front of the Eataly for those who know NYC) because the police had all the roads blocked off surrounding our hotel. So we proceeded to walk there until we were stopped and interrogated by the police.

 

They wouldn't let us proceed until we could confirm our identify and that we were actually guests of the hotel. Of course it looked all the more suspicious and didn't help that the only thing we had with us was a small black suitcase and my back pack (BACK PACK?) as our luggage missed the connecting flight and won't be arriving until this morning.

 

The whole area was closed down to traffic and pedestrians. It was an eerie and surreal feeling in NYC. Kinda like a SciFi movie. Finally after about 10 minutes of convincing them that we were really guests they let us enter our hotel. Phew! finally here and waiting for our luggage and might even have to get bombed while doing so. LOL.

 

Only in New York City. But we went out on the town in spite

of everything and had a blast!! New York is still New York

and folks soon went on about their business and pleasure as

the night was young and the food is always great. Not to

mention mention the adult beverages.
