The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free Another adventure to the isle of Manhattan and BlogHer16 is in the books. New York in the summer is the best place to be and blogger conferences are as much fun as a squirrel in your pocket. What’s a daddy blogger to do in between all the events and sites throughout the big apple? We’ve already seen Central Park, the Botanical Gardens, Chinatown and Little Italy. We even let ourselves get locked in some room to see if we could gather the clues and escape within an hour. We could not. After a day like this, full of fellowship and fun, the perfect place to take a moment and rest, weary traveler, is Madison Square Park. Don’t forget your technology or you’ll be the only one without it. Trust me, on any given day, every single person in Madison Square Park is playing and working on computers, tablet, and phones. This is great news for folks running internet travel sites. Times they are a changin.
Madison Square is a public square formed by the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Broadway at 23rd Street in the New York City borough of Manhattan. During the summer months it’s alive with throngs of New Yorkers enjoying the beautiful weather and spreading their brand of city joy. At the north end of the Flatiron District of Manhattan, it’s a perfect place to unwind and watch the city hustle around you.
For as many new pieces of technology as there where at BlogHer16, the convention has nothing on the folks hanging out in Madison Square. Between the sun worshipers, dog walkers, and bums, everyone showed up in force, showing off their latest and greatest pieces of technology. When did homeless people get into technology? I honestly didn’t know that was a thing. They were all sitting on benches playing with their cell phones. It’s like Nicaragua here. Everyone has a phone. Our photographs were taken with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and, up until now, there’s been no phone that takes better pictures.
Visit the Samsung launch page at Best Buy and learn more about the new Galaxy Note 7. Learn more about their Mobile Plan and Compare tool. It’s available at all Best Buy stores. About half of all people overpay on their cell phone bill and you are probably one of them. Congratulations. See how Best Buy can help you save a few bucks. You can use that extra savings for a trip to the Big Apple. Don’t worry if it takes a while. Manhattan is also nice in the winter.
Madison Square is best known for providing the name of Madison Square Garden, a sports arena and its successor which were located just northeast of the park for 47 years, until 1925. The Flatiron Building, across Park Avenue is a New York landmark and architectural delight. Sit in its shadows and enjoy some street popcorn while you watch the beautiful people pass by.
