Where In The World? (Hint #4 and #5)

June 28, 2008 at 5:33 pm 14 comments

This has been so much fun! Thank you all for playing. I actually have TWO winners…I’m feeling generous. Their useless gifts will be on the way next week. BUT, I’m not revealing the answer because I wrote more “hints.” Here’s the last two.

Here’s hint #4. If you’ve been in this room, you’ll know the city I visited.

OK, Hint #5 should give it away for sure… 

One of the most famous skylines in the world. And if you ever get a chance to fly there, make sure you get a window seat on the LEFT side of the plane.Let’s see how many people know where this is. If you know, add a comment on the blog. (Emails don’t count.)

    It’s New York City and clue #4 is Ellis Island! Hope you had a great trip!

    I Love NY! I don’t get there too much, but there is so much to do and see that I am always reeling. I always walk around with my head up in the air, like a true tourist!

    Ellis Island, of course. Was just there for the first time exactly a year ago, despite being born and raised in the New York metropolitan area.

    It’ easy, NOW!
    All I knew was that that pasta dish was not made in Italy!!! :-)

    I see you are in New York City. I agree with sitting next to a window if you are flying in. It is wonderful. Once I flew into the city when it was completely covered with fog with just the very tips of the highest parts of the skyscrapers showing–amazing! Another time we flew in following the river. I got to look directly down on the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Somehow flying out is not as exciting–I am just sad to be leaving.

    New York would be my guess. What fun. We lived in NJ a few years and fell in love with “the city.”

    New York City! Number 4 is Ellis Island and #5 is the tail of Northwest Air. Looks like you are leaving NYC.

    Of course, it’s New York City, and flying into LaGuardia on my first trip there, we flew over the Statue of Liberty just as a submarine was surfacing!! What a wonderful sight!!

    Well, the food didn’t give it away to me. Neither did the empty hall – although at least I knew it was somewhere in the USA. But the skyline photo did it. I would recognize Manhattan in a minute! That’s NY city!! I hope you enjoyed your time there. Lots to see and lots to do! And the City Quilter and there’s a great button shop.

    Wow! You could’ve came for a visit! Darn it… Ami was sooo close but yet so far away!
    I was probably on that little ferry boat (small yellow blob in the water) while you were passing overhead.
    Did you get to the City Quilter? One of my favorite stash building stores!
    Warn us next time you’re in town! =o)

    I should have warned you, but this was “family time.” But, we had so much fun, I’ll probably be back. Maybe next time! ~~ Ami

    NYC! Isn’t Ellis Island wonderful? I could “hear” all the voices of immigrants in the Great Room. The steep stairs up to the room add to the “greatness” of the room. I went on a real cold day on purpose so my friends and I could feel like our ancestors when they came to the Island.

    The Reception Hall at the Ellis Island NY immigration centre – now a museum and national historic monument.

    Hi :-)
    Hey, I have a web page now too! Not much on it though. :-)

    Anyway – I recognized Ellis Island right away, as I have a picture of DH and DS2 standing in front of that window, and THEY are taking pix of the window! I was taking pix of them. :-)

    Too bad it took me so long to get here: I could have been the new proud owner of a useless pressie! (That’s Britspeak for present).

    Hope you’re having fun! Oh, I know you are – you’re YOU! :-D
