At the check in of our hotel - the ROW hotel on 8th avenue, just a block away from Times square - I mentioned that I sometimes draw the view from my hotel room windows. It could be coincidence, but we got a corner room at the top of the hotel: the 28th. floor. With a breathtaking view to the west over Hell's kitchen towards the Hudson, and an equally breathtaking view along 8th avenue towards the south.
There was a disadvantage though. It was the smallest hotel bedroom that we ever had in the States. We had trouble putting our suitcase somewhere. But it was freshly decorated, clean, well kept and had good sanitary provisions. And with a perfect location and a perfect view, what more can you wish for.
