– we all fell asleep at about 9 and woke up at 2:30 thinking it was time to get up, tossed and turned for another 2 hours and then at 4:45 we decided to get up and get going early, t give us extra time to get through airport security in buffalo. We got up, got ready and went down stairs, ate breakfast and me and Danika grabbed something to eat quick, whoe waiting for the airport shuttle, and then we saw some pilots, airline stewards in our hotel lobby, and then we got in the shuttle and headed for the airport, and it didn’t take long to go through airport security, I handed all of my stuff in my carry on bag over and out it in a bin, and away it went through the conveyer and I had to take my shoes off, and went through no problem and got my stuff, and we went to a window and an airlin worker took our picture in front of the jet blue plane, then we went to find our terminal and sat for an hour and a bit waiting to get on our plane and then it was boarding time, we were all so tired because we were up since 2;30 am, we took off on the run way at 8:10 and landed at about 9:20, we were expected to land at 9:29, but we arrived early! We got off our plane and headed for the baggage claim at JFK, we got our luggage and called for our town car and we all loaded into it, and headed out and away from the crazy traffic around JFK, it took about an hour, once we got out of Queens and over the bridge to manhattan; I ended up falling asleep in the car ride to NYC, put my sunglasses on and fell asleep. Once we got to the hotel, we pulled in and got out, the driver got our luggage out and we headed for the hotel front desk.. only it wasn’t on the first floor.. the first floor of the marriott marquis is all elevators.. for all 4o ..something floors..  49 floors , 1,900 rooms , 57 suites 55 meeting rooms, 101,450 sq ft of total meeting space ,3 concierge levels. Awesome hotel btw! Anyways, we weren’t sure we would be able to get our room, they said check in time was 4pm, but we got our’s at noon. We headed for the elevators and realized they were all glass.. was scary at first , we got off the elevator , and headed to our hotel room, opened the door and walked in.. and wow! our room was amazing, 2 huge beds, a safe, a couch, a huge flat screen tv, the bathroom was luxurious as well and very spacious. We dropped our bags and went down stairs to grab Starbucks and sat for a bit to relax.  We then headed out into Times square.. and had no clue where we were going, we walked quiet far, and it was over whelming taking everything in, and the busyness that we aren’t used to. All we saw was yellow cabs.. and tons of stores and tons of people.  We walked around NYC for a couple hours and then went back to the hotel, decided on dinner and my mom and I went to the one of the hotels restaurants for dinner a had dinner and later that night we went back out into times Square to see all the lights at night.
