We are loving our time in NYC, when I left off last, we were leaving Goveror's Island.....
After we got off the ferry, we decided to go to Greenwich Village.
I am amazed at how each part of NY, has it's own vibe, treasures and parks to enjoy.
We walked all around before settling in at Washington Square Park to do some people watching. That place is like a circus with all it's performers! WOW!
Well, this people watching, turned You Tube video making!
First, watch this slideshow. See all those photos of the kids and Natalia walking by a video crew? I'll explain in a sec.
So we were watching this dancer, and Destiny said mom, she reminds me of something I was watching on Instagram. Here let me show you, this photographer is amazing.
So she gets out her Instagram and shows me this Insta famous photographer named Jordan Matter, who is known for his 10 minute shoots. So we watch a few of his AMAZING stuff and put phones away and keep chatting.
Suddenly, Destiny GASPS....
THERE HE IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Seriously, what are the odds that we were just talking about the man behind the camera, and here he is beside us in the park.
After a while, he came over to us and asked if we wanted to be part of his You Tube shoot.
So this heartfelt shoot is all about Evan Ruggerio, dancer and cancer survivor, now living and dancing with one leg. He was offering free tap lessons for this shoot, so we all hopped out there to help.
It was a blast! Destiny went first....and then was interviewed by the local news.
If you want to see the girl's tap lesson video, it's on the vimeo channel: www.vimeo.com/rvoilers.
Here is their free style video:
Tylan decided they needed a boy out there, so he volunteered. When we found out they had a men's size 14 tap shoe, you better believe I bee-lined it for Dale!
If you want to see Tylan and Dale's tap dance lesson video, go to www.vimeo.com/rvoilers
Here is there free styles, CRACK ME UP! The crowd went wild!
In the end, Paxton and I watched, because so many other people wanted a chance to dance, but it was SO AMAZING to see so many Ferguson's and Miss Natalia out there!
I will blog the you tube video when it comes out, so you can see the final product.
All that dancing had everyone starving, so Natalia wanted us to taste something fun called Pommes Frites...aka fries with cool tipping sauces.
We are walking over 20k steps everyday and it makes us STARVING at weird hours, and sleepy. So after we ate fries and NY pizza, because hello?! What else do you eat at 10pm, we knew we needed to get to bed!
Good night, everyone. See you again tomorrow for our LAST DAY in the Big Apple! This was a day that memories are made of. :)
P.S. Since I blogged this, Jordan has posted his You Tube video. I have posted it below! Can you spot all 6 Ferguson's?
