Decided to take the day off and hopped the bus out of Greenwood Lake into NYC for the day. Saw the major sites...Times Square, Central Park, Empire State. I made some street friends, ate a bunch of pizza and random street food, walked a lot of miles, and then hopped the bus back into town. So much for the day off. It was a good day though, but sensory overload for sure. Way more people, noise, and smells than I'm used to.
So far, New York has been mostly rain, which is a bummer. Spent some time at the bar in Greenwood Lake to kill time while it poured. We made friends with a guy named Richard at the bar. He's a NYPD cop and was a first responder on 9/11. He offered to let us sleep at his place that night. We gladly took the generosity and a free place to stay. Watched some hockey, drank some beer, and heard some awesome stories from a cop in NYC. Great guy!
Slowly but surely trudging out the miles.
1430 miles down, 756 miles to go.
