A Walk to Carnegie Hall

Many years ago, my mother-in-law decided that she wanted to go to concerts at Carnegie Hall and that her son was going to go with her. For a few seasons it was a bonding experience for mother and son and I stayed home with the kids. It worked for all of us -- they had a night out and I had a quiet night alone, once the kids went to bed. When mom passed away, we inherited the tickets for the upcoming season and I started going with Mike. This year we renewed the subscriptions and now periodically hustle uptown for an evening of wonderful music.

On our last trip I remembered my camera and so you get some NYC highlights on the walks to and from Carnegie Hall and our apartment.

Twins Pub -- I know that they used to have an all-Twin waitstaff but I do not know if it is still true and googling was no help.
Alvin Ailey
The Morgan Mail Facility (USPS), site of a major anthrax scare in 2001. Next to and connected to it on the south is another postal building where a supermarket was supposed to go on the first floor. Never happened -- probably due to the anthrax scares.The GHI Insurance building from which far too many communications will be coming in the following weeks.

The Cheyenne Diner. An old-fashioned stainless steel faced diner. Nope, never eaten here.
Later -- the walk home. Now to go do some biking.

How cool that you get to experience Carnegie Hall and performances on that scale. I would love to do that some day!

I love your New York tours and how you take us along. I am still concerned that I haven't unfolded "the" blog that tells me why you're still in pain after your accident. You might need to have mercy on me and tell me, I was supposed to be in bed an hour ago ... but .. I was so concerned when I discovered I'd missed so much with you! *hugs*
