New York City

Sunday, June 24
New York City

We are on our way.  With near 100 degree heat in NYC, lightning, and thunder storms, JFK airport put a two hour hold on our take-off last Friday morning.  Credit to JetBlue...they had us wait in the terminal rather than the plane on the runway.
We are winning the "terrible parents award" walking the streets of Manhattan at midnight with our children looking for food.  Rather amazing how few places are open for a midnight dinner in mid-town Manhattan.  Suggestions?
We met up with the Weiss family for the first of our three cities together.
Saturday morning we headed to Penn Station for the train ride to Princeton to celebrate the high school graduation of cousin Randi's son Ryan (Dickinson '16).  As part of Shayna's family history travel journey, we stopped at the Princeton faculty apartments where we celebrated her first birthday.  (She didn't remember it).
Thanks to the Weiss' and TKTS, we returned to Manhattan in time for the evening performance of Sister Act and...yet again...terrible parents searching for food in mid-town Manhattan at midnight.  With the same people hanging out on the streets at that hour, we're kinda feeling like locals.
We're off now for the Sunday matinee of Newsies...
