The Long Ride

The Long Ride The morning broke bright, calm, warm and dry.  We were antsy to go.  Deciding to take a bike ride through Central Park, we located the nearest bike stand that had bikes, (Sometimes they are not at the closest rack), and walked over to 50th and Broadway, about a mile, to find our...

ARS NOVA

Broadway is down the street.  About 7 blocks south and 3 blocks east.  Ars Nova is not just off Broadway, it is down the street and around the corner, and in a lot of ways, a world away. We found another venue to check out.  Ars Nova is a theater dedicated to giving new emerging... Continue Reading →

The Magic of Greenwich Village

If I had only one Saturday afternoon to spend in Manhattan, I think I would choose to spend it in Washington Sq. Park at Greenwich Village.  This is a place where everyone can be themselves, or in some cases, who they would like to be. Let’s start with Greenwich Village the neighborhood.  Once the home...

Gettin’ Around Town

We have been testing the options for getting around town.  We love the walking, it puts us on the streets where we can see the people, and notice the little things that might easily be missed, but it is slow and there is a limit to how far we can roam.   The subway is faster, but...

The MTA operates the mass transit system throughout New York City.  The subways... Continue Reading →

Saturday In the Park

Saturday morning, we are sleeping in.  Snoozing listening to the morning news, and thinking about getting up to fix breakfast.  Coffee is already brewing.  The Saturday anchor is sharing small talk, mostly good things that are happening in the city.  Next story up he mentions an annual pillow fight at Washington Square in the afternoon. ...

Frogs in the Garden

It was about 3pm in the afternoon.  I was looking for the scores of the NIT basketball tournament to see how TCU had fared the night before.  TCU had won and was in the finals of the National Invitational.  The home town boys were playing right down the street at Madison Square Garden. The Horny... Continue Reading →

Chelsea Highline

Again, we took off walking south.  There is an elevated sidewalk, The High Line Park, that wanders through the tall buildings about 3-4 stories above the streets.  This is a linear park following what is left of an old elevated railroad line.  It is nicely landscaped and is full of tourists taking pictures of the architecture...
