 2015—Take The “A” Train

Pope mania was everywhere in NYC Friday with tens of thousands of people descending on the various venues around the city. We’d seen the preparations at Central Park Thursday, so we chose to go in the opposite direction to avoid the madness. After breakfast, we stopped in at Milano Market on Broadway and bought some deli sandwiches and wine, then we hopped the “A” train to escape the crowds. The “A” train took us to the Cloisters on the northern tip of Manhattan. I think I could almost hear Duke Ellington tickling the ivories as we swayed on the subway tracks. After touring the Cloisters and seeing its fascinating collection that includes the 15th century Unicorn Tapestries, we walked to nearby Inwood Hill Park and we had a very late afternoon picnic on the lawn in view of the Henry Hudson Bridge. By the time we returned to our neighborhood, we’d registered another 15,746 steps, 7 miles.

  1. Carol – your NYC images are delightful and it sounds like you are having a great time. The Top shot looks like ZABAR’s If there could be a way to catch the aroma as well as a photo it would be the full experience. Have Fun
