Puttin' On The Ritz

There's nothing like a nice relaxing vacation to recharge one's batteries, right? On Friday, my longtime pal Aliceee flew up from Florida to NYC for the 4th of July holiday and on her first night, for business, she stayed at the five-star Ritz Carlton Battery Park City in Manhattan.

But what fun is it to spend the evening at such a swank destination all by oneself, right? I'll be smacked up the noggin if she didn't invite me to join her for an ooh la la Brooklyn getaway.

So Friday afternoon I crossed the river and we had nearly 24 hours of blissful R&R, along with beautiful views of the Battery Park area and a journey through the Wall Street area and lower western-most edge of the island. Join me for a stroll, yes? *
 Your diddy was taking a nap in one of the nearby parks, on right! We said hello. He belched.
