Those views go on forever!! Looking northeast at the Chrysler Building.

Saturday was a tour of Little Italy, Chinatown, Soho ---a perfect day to enjoy some of these neighborhoods that have their own unique vibe. And after plenty of walking, we landed in GreenwichVillage to pop into the ever popular string of bars on Bleeker St., some that originated the music scene of NY—The Red Lion, The Bitter End as well as Terra Blues and Le Poisson Rouge

 Bleeker St.

Taking a break on Bleeker St. to make some hard decisions about where to dine and hydrate.

From here, we head back down to Times Square for an evening show of Phantom of the Opera! Everyone should enjoy seeing a classic Broadway musical at least once in their life and POTO does not disappoint!
