New York. Day 2.

A rather splendid day, even if I endured most of it with a hangover.
Thank you, Samuel Adams.

First thing this "morning", we went down to the area where the plane hit that building the other day (at Producer Dave's request) -- but we couldn't find it. So we got a bite to eat instead although, sadly, not at Wok 'n Roll. A walk over the Brooklyn Bridge and back is not pictured, but it was done. I even spoke to my mum while there (she rang me, just so you know).

After thinking a saunter down to sail to to Staten Island was in order, and many many issues with getting on the wrong Subway train (I think we went wrong about five times), we decided to cut our losses, go above ground, and walk. That's when Producer Dave (pictured) tripped over the lamp post base (pictured) in true comic book fashion. He was engrossed in TINY at the time.

Incidentally, the amusing safety sign in the third picture are in a platform office at the South Ferry Terminal stop on the A.After heading back to freshen up, a mooch down town to the Grassroots Tavern for a few beers was in order -- that's the street sign at the end of the block, so we know where the same area is tomorrow. It did seem to be the area to be in.

Finally, there's a chap at my local station (42nd Street) cleaning the platform with a pressure washer.

Tomorrow is likely to entail Coney Island and other touristy nonsense. And a big Saturday night out.
