  • Train to Times Square - Dallas BBQ for dinner

  • Home to bed.
Saturday Sept. 20
  • Breakfast at home, then train to Ground Zero - looking around downtown
  • Back to apartment for lunch, with a stop at NYU bookstore - score!
  • Sandwiches a la Shawn
  • Boeing-Boeing on Broadway! WONDERFUL show. My review will be "glowing-glowing"
  • After show got to see a few cast members, but not Gina Gershon. Shawn was disappointed.
  • Walked up Seventh Ave in a street fair - lots of things to see and tempting food.
  • Bus ride down Fifth Avenue to get home
  • Mercado's Pizza for supper with a green salad - YUM
  • Staten Island Ferry - see the twinkling lights of downtown and the Statue of Liberty (I was sure missing my bubba Max!)

  • Six transfer to N heading to Astoria, Queens

Monday Sept. 23
  • Shawn's off teaching class
  • Parents are stumbling around while I work
  • Will probably go to Washington Square Park, the NYU bookstore and around our neighborhood for a wander

A good visit! We're all exhausted and can't wait to have a bigger place to more comfortably accommodate our visitors!
