Welcome to Times Square


Welcome to Times Square, originally uploaded by mickzilla.

The Super 8 carpet blob didn't get me - but I was sure glad to get out of that stinky place.

Kelly came through as always - and helped me find something a lot better for our New York visit - There's this travel booking website (name withheld until they send my check) that lists the general location, star-rating, and price of a hotel - but it doesn't say what the hotel is, until your non-refundable booking is complete. That's how they can do it super-cheap. I guess it's a form of gambling, so I won't do it on the sabbath but none the less, it got us a 4 star Hotel in Newark for $94 (10 minutes from Time Square by public transit) and for tomorrow, i got a 3 star right on the waterfront downtown Cleveland for $49. I guess I'm 2 for 2.

We crossed 3 states yesterday (Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts) - and 3 more today (Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey). When we hit New York - I assume right around rush-hour time, as there was about 2 millions cars moving very quickly, all around me. I'm a very confident driver, but New York City driving is inhuman... After a few near death experiences, and accidentally running through a toll booth without paying, we made it into New Jersey, which felt more like the opening scene from the Soprano's.

We were professional tourists in Manhattan today. Especially on top of the Empire State Building. It was the tallest in the world from 1931-1972, and then in 1973, Toronto built the CN Tower. Go Canada!

    Nice picture of Keona. Thought I'd point out that there's a drunk guy and a corona in the background too.

    The toll booth guys didn't come after you?
