A Rainy Day & Lower Manhattan

Yesterday was pretty much a complete write off, it poured with rain all day long. The one time I did venture out for lunch I got absolutely drenched despite wearing a raincoat. Things were quickly turned around today though with a nice and sunny 30 degree day. On my itinerary for the day was Lower Manhattan. I caught the subway down and got off at the World Trade Center station. I walked around the entire […]

New York Off To A Shaky Start

The flight was a bumpy one; I was in the thirteenth row and the back row of the plane, so it wasn’t a big one. Once in New York, baggage was easy and I got myself to the AirTrain, a train that goes around the airport, terminating at a NYC subway station. I got there easy enough and myself onto the subway. There weren’t many people on the carriage when I got on, but that […]
