77th Street stop, I don’t think I have ever gotten off the subway here.

The only thing here is Lenox Hill Hospital. If I have to go to the hospital, I’m going in style, in an ambulance with lights and sirens!

Live music! They were willing to let me take their picture, one asked me if it was going on You-Tube. They played a cool song, I wish I had written it down because now I can’t remember. There is also a news stand here, I didn’t take a picture because the man seemed kind of grumpy, I just bought a blue Gatorade and went on my merry way.

86th Street is the next stop, here you can transfer to the 4 or 5 trains. You will still be on the green train, but the 4 and 5 are express trains. This makes them evil on speed. They go the same direction but they make different stops when you get to Brooklyn or the Bronx.

This is something you need to know on the subway, you do not travel north or south. You go uptown or downtown. Uptown takes you to the Bronx, Downtown takes you to Brooklyn. We are not discussing Queens, the green train does not go to Queens.


This is a Mets hat. This is a good place for a Mets hat, any other team the owner would have climbed down into the muck to get the hat but Mets fans ….. I might be a little biased.


Here are some examples of the ornate tile work. If you click on the pictures they will get bigger. Don’t worry it’s safe, it just links to a full-size image, you won’t go to another website.

I spent Saturday night at my old place. I used to rage against people who said I lived upstate, “I don’t live upstate, I live in the Hudson Valley.” Saturday when Em was in the city and the Greenpeace guy was asking us for money, the first question they always ask is “Where are you from?” Em answers, “Upstate.” So ….

I slept in my old bedroom, except it wasn’t my old bedroom. The bed was where my sewing machine used to be, they actually turned the two rooms into one, so there is a sleeping area and a sitting area, so Sarah can have a friend over. Em got corn and roasted it on the grill. It was so good, but I was sick, I am still sick. Blech.

Yankees lost on Sunday, CC went on the DL, I told Alex, “The Yankees are doomed, that means no more half-price Papa John’s.” His reply was they better start winning again because he wants his pizza!

So my head is going to explode anytime now. I should post the rest of my pictures before that happens.
