We're a couple who love visiting NYC, where we always stay on the upper West Side. We grew to love it because we stayed many times with friends who lived on 77th near Columbus (they now live in western Mass, and we'll be leaving Saturday to visit them for a few days). Bill retired early 10 years ago, but Val still goes to the office to do CPA work. We enjoy theater (the less usual kind), walking NYC, and dining well. We're leaving three cats at home. Our girls are grown, but when each one graduated, they asked for a trip with friends to New York instead of to Cancun or some other party beach, and we happily obliged, sending them with hugs to the UWS. Looking forward to the stay, looks lovely!
