We walked 13 blocks to collect our tickets, realised we were across the street from Grand Central Station. So we went there and had a great time taking pictures.
That was an amazing experience, having to walk all around the fencing to get to the entrance really gives an idea of the size of the construction site. Then finding the pools and all the names, there are really no words for that........and on some of the names are white roses. These are to commemorate those people's birthday.
Bill's Burgers and how lucky were we? I got the perfect New York Hot Dog, with sauerkraut and sweet pickle relish, and Alan got a great burger. We also got Cold Ass Beer - considering how cold it was outside (22 F) this seemed appropriate! Fabulous! If I ever get to NYC again, I will make a point of returning to Bill's!
Alan's photo again!
After this, we decided to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. But the day was getting too long and physical for me, not to mention too cold. So we got almost to the water line and had to turn back. We will do the whole thing before we go home.
By this time, the tour buses had stopped, so we had to take the subway back to our hotel, stopping along the way at a bakery for New York Cheesecake and coffee to take back to the room.
No dinner for us tonight, we have eaten enough. Maybe not exactly a healthy day, but I sure wish I had brought my pedometer. We covered some miles for sure!
There is a huge storm predicted to hit the city beginning at 1am. So we are not even certain if we will be able to use our bus tickets tomorrow!
And New York is the most beautiful city in the world? It is not far from it. No urban night is like the night there…. Squares af ter squares of flame, set up and cut into the aether. Here is our poetry, for we have pulled down the stars to our will.Ezra Pound
