In the Spring of 2010, we spent a wonderful week in New York City. When we told Annie we were going there she requested a visit to The Plaza...to see where Kevin McCallister got into so much troublein the Home Alone II...Lost in New York movie. She was so excited...the Home Alone movies have been her favorites since she was very small.
Annie gave us a running commentary as we approached the hotel. Telling us exactly what happened here and there...it was a lot of fun for all three of us.
Outside the hotel we met this lovely fellow...Neil, the Doorman. He was delighted to take Annie all over, telling her all about the filming of the movie and hitting all places that are in the film.
Neil was one of the nicest people we have met in our travels. Much of the original hotel is now private space...condos that are not accessible to the public. Neil made sure our girl got to see some of these places....
...like this hallway where Kevin ran into Donald Trump.
The famous elevator Kevin slid in to to escape Marv and Harry.
There is a shot of Kevin here...on his way to Central Park...
...this is where he jumps into the trunk of the hansom cab...
..and of course...the well known Bethesda Fountain.
We made big memories that day! And, I have to admit, we heart New York!
Enjoy the day,
