Arrival in the Big Apple
A brief note to advise that we have now arrived in the Big Apple. Allthego and Homealone travelled down from Boston on the train and arrived at Penn St Station , 6 blocks from our lodgings at the Staybridge Suites on 40th Street. Just a short stroll with the bags.
The train trip took about 4 hours and was very relaxing, rolling through the countryside and along the coast into New Haven and then the built up areas into New York. The Imlays had caught the plane from Boston to go to Richmond for a few days, before rejoining us in New York later this week. They will be staying at the Distrikt Hotel right next door to us on 40th Street.
The Distrik seems to be undergoing some extensive refurbishments, but I’m sure that will not greatly inconvenience their guests. Sunshine is promised for the next couple of days so the walking shoes are out!
