Travel is aways an adventure, especially when one travels to New York City. My friend Pat McHugh and I spent last week in New York City. We saw five Broadwy shows, attended Jim Caruso’s Monday Cast Party at Birdland, visited the National 9/11 Memorial & Museum, took a bicycle-rickshaw ride around Central Park and visited the new Nordstrom Women’s Store. To save money, we mostly bought groceries and did mini-cooking and warming in our timeshare mini-kitchen. The weather was perfect.
What was not so perfect was our flight from Las Vegas to JFK over a storming Midwest, Our plane arched and bumped for almost two hours straight, I wasn’t worried because my friend Pat has a direct line to God. As it turned out, the lady in the third seat was also a good Catholic girl. Both women were praying, so I was covered, and we made it.
Next Pat and I compared prices of traveling from JFK to our Broadway location. Uber’s price was $82. A car service named Carmel was $47. We took Carmel and had a great driver whom we got to know because the trip to town was long, probably close to an hour and a half, due to bumper-to-bumper traffic and construction-caused closed streets.
For those of you who like photos, pictures from the trip are below. At the end is a video taken at Jim Caruso’s Cast Party at Birdland. Joan Crowe performed a fun song that the audience loved.
