Live from New York, It's Thursday Morning
An early start got the three of us into J and D's Suburban, down to SF, on the plane, into MSP, on another plane, and down into LaGuardia, where we caught a taxi and found our apartment in the city, just off the lower west side of Central Park. This morning trucks seem to be on a demolition derby marathon out in the street this morning, but it's getting us going, and we're off to ride a ferry and see the great lady standing on her little island, her lamp held high beside the golden door. So far we've had a beginner's look at the park, fended off several hundred offers of carriage and taxi rides, and taken a walk around the neighborhood to discover our Morton Williams grocery store, our CVS Pharmacy, and a nice little bakery/deli that is calling out my name this morning. These are all within the block.
