One little "secret" of living in NYC is how nice the weekends are in the summer when so many people leave town.
- No lines for brunch, etc.
an afternoon last weekend at [[http://hudsonriverpark.org/parkmap/p51.html
this past Friday night taking the older son over the Staten Island Ferry to see the minor Yankees. $10 a seat, right next to the ferry terminal, small/new stadium with the harbor just beyond the outfield, etc. We left in the middle of the... 2nd inning! But for both rides on the ferry we stood at the very front gate overlooking the bow. During the ride back it was getting dark and the lights of the city and the Statue Of Liberty were coming on. Very cool.
