Memories of Afternoon Tea at The Plaza, NYC


I traveled to New York City in November, 1999, with friends Leona and Judy.  The three of us had been to NYC numerous times before.  Sightseeing at the typical tourist accractions was not tops on our agenda.  Our goal was to shop, shop and shop, and to see shows.  In addition, each of us chose one special thing we wanted to do.  On the three night trip to NYC, we shopped, saw three Broadway shows and the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes Christmas Show,
shopped, enjoyed afternoon tea at The Plaza Hotel (my choice).
And,  did I say we shopped?!?
In my opinion, New York City is the perfect destination for a fun "girlfriends trip." 
In March when we were in NYC,  the Palm Court at The Plaza was still undergoing major rennovations, according to their website, but is to re-open for afternoon tea soon.  I certainly hope so!  It was a memorable afternoon tea event for me.

My tea time memories of The Plaza... a surprise 50th birthday celebration! My family rented a white stretch limosine, and we traveled from PA to NYC in style. Once there, my NY family joined us at The Palm Court in The Plaza for Afternoon Tea. It was pure delight to be surrounded by family (sisters, BILs, neices, nephews, and my dad) I love and taking tea, which I also love!

I have only been in New York once, but can see it would be a very fun place to visit with girl friends. Wish I was closer, but then I am closer to things on the west coast and I would miss those if I were on the east side. So I will just enjoy your coverage of the east coast events.

I think tea and shopping is a perfectly grand combination!
