As I've Tweeted and mentioned for day prior to this, I had a big weekend scheduled in New York City this Memorial Day. And like anything you really look forward to, it took forever to get here and was over in two Addams Family snaps! I got a new camera and I apologize if some of the photos below are a little fuzzy. My hands were sweaty sometimes and well, my hands shake a tad, so... and only figured out the "shake adjustment" feature on the camera during the bus trip home! Ah well... Here is my pictorial essay on my "Weekend in the City." Enjoy.
Saturday, May 29, 2010:
Sunny, breezy, increasing warm, but not unbearable... up at 5:30 to pack (ok, I procrastinate), my buddy picks me up at 6:30... Megabus departs a bit after 7 and we are in the city by 10:45! Bad knees (me), allergies/asthma (my buddy) converge to force the trip uptown via the subway under Madison Square Garden. Next stop 42nd Street Station, 44th Street exit!
Now I get that excited feeling in the pit of my stomach... it is almost show time. So we walk over to 45th Street, and take in the view of all the theatre marquees in a row. (When I was a kid, I thought that's what Broadway was - a lobg street with all of the theatres side by side...)
