Drum Roll, Please!

A big oops! I missed joining bloggers all over the world in the A to Z Theme Reveal. Yes, the official date of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal was Monday, March 19. But there are still ten days until the Challenge begins and there's time for the momentum to build up. 

After considering any number of ideas -- drum roll, please -- we're going on a subway tour of New York City. Some of the stops will be old favorites. I would be remiss to leave out Times Square or Grand Central Station. But other posts will include stops I've not been to before. There are 469 subway stations in New York City and I've probably only been to half of them, so I'm looking forward to exploring New York, too. We will be in four of the five boroughs, as Staten Island isn't part of the subway system. There will be sightseeing, there will be history and there will be coffee. We're starting on Sunday, April 1 -- no fooling! -- at Astor Place and plan to complete our tour around the city on the Z line on April 30. I hope you'll join me for the ride of the year.

I'd mentioned to friends that I was going to do a post about coffee mugs. I didn't finish the photographs and my friend, Donna, texted me and asked if she missed the the mug post. Donna, I'm sorry to have let you down. I hope to get the "mug post" up tomorrow. There's also a book review coming and a Pink Saturday post featuring spring fashion on Madison Avenue.  

After yesterday's snow and sleet the temperature rose and as you can see from the picture above, not a drop of snow remains on Broadway. There is still patches of snow, but from this picture it's impossible to think that just 24 hours before it was snowing and the sidewalks were icy.

As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care.

Oh my gracious. So not disappointed! Your posts are always something I look forward to. I so appreciate seeing places through your eyes, and enjoy getting to go along your travels vicariously. I am glad the weather warmed up, and maybe spring will be here for good. I have never been on a subway before, so going “with” you will be a delightful treat!

I'm looking forward to all your a-z posts. Your sights of New York City are always enjoyed. Our snow is still on the ground, but hopefully it'll be warming up soon.

Hello Fellow A to Z challenge participant. I agree coming up with a topic is tricky, yours sounds a lovely way to share the New York City that you love, introduce these places to us, and potentially find some new favourites. The NY subway is so iconic but I realise I don't know too much about it I can't wait for our tour and lucky you to have a Z line, its a perfect A to Z situation!
Happy Weekend Carol
