Lion King of New York

This is one of several funny moments from our vacation.

On your second trip to New York, when you were three years old, we took you to see the Lion King on Broadway. After that you fell in love with both the characters and the story while also associating them both with New York.

When you were six years old we took you back to New York for vacation, once again. Upon our arrival in the city we drove past Union Square on our way to Gramercy Park. As we drove by, you suddenly shouted, “Look! It’s the Lion King! He has a Lion King hat on!”

Indeed, there was a man walking along with a most interesting headdress. It wasn’t a Lion King hat though; it was just a homeless man with a creative sense of style. A style that included caution tape hanging down his back like a lion’s mane.

But Elizabeth, you are so observant, and we all agreed that we definitely saw the Lion King walking down the street in New York City.
