My First Trip To New York (6/00)

I went to my friend Christel's housewarming party and then a week later got a plane to New York.... here are a few pix...

Christel got a new pad so we all showed up and JAMMED!

Well the party-goers all talked me into going up and trying to sing for the hostess with the mostest... I sang "Yesterday"... I never said I would sing it WELL ;^)

Heeeeere's New York!!

Here is a pic taken from my friend Jennifer's convertable Rabbit... That is Times Square in NEW YORK CITY... We had just FINALLY got past the blockade set up for the GAY PRIDE PARADE that was going on that day... We had NO IDEA it was going on until we ran right SMACK into the tail end of it (no pun intended)... So I just HAD to stand up as we passed the end of the parade and shout in my lispiest voice, "LOOK BRUCIE- THERE GOES BARBARA STREISAND!"

EVERYONE turned and looked for her...

Here is my cute NY pal Jennifer- she invited me out and on two day's notice I got priceline.com to get me $250 round trip tix... THANX CAPTAIN KIRK!!! I was STOKED... She was a great host for the long fun weekend- my first trip to the East Coast...
The pizza at this little deli in Manhattan was the BEST I HAD EVER HAD IN MY ENTIRE LIFE...

I told my buddy Garret (left) about the cheap tix and a-web-surfing-he-went to priceline.com and he joined us on the rooftop of some building in Manhattan. I chose this occasion to get pretty drunk- a rarity for me...

We stayed the first night in Westchester, New Jersey at her brother Frank's place. We had more pizza here... incidently, THAT then became the BEST pizza I had ever had in my entire life...

We drove to the New Jersey Shore and met up with Garret's friend Janine. She's from Brooklyn. She's a total BABE! Foggettaboutit...

Garret and I got the BONUS PLAN when two of Janine's HOTT friends showed up... It wasa double whammy: they were incredibly gorgeous- AND pretty damn intelligent as well... they were ANNIHILATING the many men attempting to pick them up at the bar... THANK GAWD I had Jen (and they knew me through Janine) or I might have been another helpless victim...

Here we are getting a Sunset pic in at the New Jersey Shore... notice the sun setting in West BEHIND us- new for me...

Here is a completely unrelated picture: this is my MOD friend Kirk and I in L.A. at MORRISSEY'S B-DAY night at Club Panic...

Here's the rset of the pix I developed recently!

Yes Garret and I were the Kings of New York (or at least Manhattan) for the day- that's the Empire State Building behind us...

We took the SUBWAY (but the pix didn't turn out) for part of the trip to the Madison Square Garden to see the New York Liberty WNBA team play the L.A. Sparks - and we had SKYBOX tix through Fox!!!

This was the view from our V.I.P. Executive Fox Skybox Suite. Yes we ELITISTS looked down upon the mere "commoners" below us...

Garret said the menu had Domino's Pizza for only $95...

This is the famous MACYS building taken from the MSG lobby... they filmed "Miracle on 34th Street" here...

Well here I am holding up the world...

We walked by an entrance here to Central Park (LOTS of people) but didn't actually go in...

Here we are under the New York Hard Rock Cafe...

My camera's flash died right about here so this will be the end of my NY pix that anyone can actually SEE...

THANKS FOR CHECKING THEM OUT!
