NYC - The Big Apple!

My family spent 3 days in the Big Apple this summer! We played the ultimate tourists - sightseeing, dining, and walking all around Manhattan. One of my favorite sights was the Annex - the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame! I'll never get to the original one so this is the perfect substitute. The first stop is a holding room with plaques of all the inductees - every time a song plays, the plaque of the artist lights up-creating a light & sound show. Next, is a movie of the history of rock & roll. After that, there are displays of clothing, instruments, and various memorabilia from many of these famous rockers. The last section is John Lennon - the New York Years - created by Yoko Ono. This is so amazing and interesting - it really gives you a peek into his private, family life and creative side. If you are in NYC - do not miss this fascinating place!
