kickin' it in the big apple
I just this moment got back to my hotel room in beautiful downtow Saratoga Springs, NY from a day in New York City. (as of about 1:30 am; posting was initially Bloggered.) I was up early today and drove to Albany, where I caught an Amtrak in to the Big Apple. I took the subway from Penn Station all the way downtown, rode the Stanten Island Ferry back and forth, caught a bus to Chinatown, grabbed the subway to midtown, where I wandered around Fifth Avenue up to Central Park, got another bus to the Empire State Building (the day passes sold by the local transit authority are simply awesome), zipped over to Grand Central Station and caught the crosstown shuttle to Times Square, then back to Penn Station for dinner and the train back to Albany. The last 45 minutes in the car were probably the hardest part.
More details and photos later; for now, it's off to bed.
