this weekend some friends of ours ,matt and megan and their daughters, came to visit us, which was great. we took the day on saturday to head into new york city. we drove to weehawkin, took the ferry over to 39th street, and then the bus to times square, where we took the kids to toys-r-us. from there we grabbed lunch at a less-than-stellar deli, then took the subway up to central park, where we visited the central park zoo. we had a great day in the city, aided by some of the best weather you could possibly imagine.
as i've written here many times before, i love new york city. when i go there, even though i am often 'mr. intense,' because i'm trying to make sure everyone sticks together and gets where they need to go, etc., i am also very content. i love being there. i love the smells and sounds. i love the way the wind cuts through the streets. i love the way life bursts forth in every crack and crevice. i love the variety of people who call the place home. i love the width and the breadth of it. i love the whole thing; the whole city; the whole experience. i heart n.y.
