A day in NYC

Took a grueling 90-minute train to NYC yesterday. For the record, I don't <3 the big, crowded, noisy, stinky, smoky apple. But we had fun. Saw the Statue of Liberty, NY Public Library, Central Park, FAO Schwarz, Rockefeller Plaza, Times Square, and Spiderman on Broadway.

FAO Schwarz

Hello, horse!

Central Park

We saw a bicyclist nearly run over by a taxi, two horrible M-to-F trannies in Central Park, a man on the corner covered in rats, and a man with a crazy sign proclaiming, "Hindu men are socialized to have sex with children," among other crazy things.

Spiderman on Broadway was as crazy awful as I expected. I really enjoyed everything about it except the songs. They were really terrible songs. But the artistic director is a genius—costuming and sets were fantastic! And Spiderman flying around on wires just above the audience's heads. It was fun. And on the way back to the train station, we enjoyed proper NY street pizza—possibly my favorite thing of the day.
