New York, NY

Four days, three nights in the city so nice they had to name it twice. It was a spectacle to see that’s for sure, and now I can say I was there, but to be honest not sure if I’ll ever go back (maybe to see the new Yankee Stadium and Letterman since he was on hiatus).
Four days of Full Tourist Mode… a ton of walking around Manhattan, from Broadway/Times Square down to Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan back up through Central Park and around museums like the Guggenheim, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and MoMa. And closed the trip out with a Harbor Lights boat tour.
And who would have thought that two hours before game time wouldn’t have been enough to get into Monument Park (they shut the line down by the time I got over to that side of the park).

Shipped up to Boston

Through my alumni association I hooked up a ticket to see my Sox take on their Sox at Fenway in Boston on Labor Day weekend. Sure, their Sox walloped mine, but it was great to see Fenway and the city of Boston for the first time. Kinda wish I could have spent another day or two there, but I gotta save up to see my Sox take on the Yankees in a couple weeks…
