Stuck in clogged traffic on the other side of the Lincoln Tunnel I missed the car waiting in Manhattan to take me to dinner, so I caught the subway to Central Park. I love the immediacy of life in the subway.
I met my sister and brother-in-law for a fine meal at Marea on South Central Park.
Followed by a cigar at the Havana Club.
The next day my sister and took her dog fo a walk in Central Park, had our hair done and went shopping for shoes. She was appalled that I only had one worn pair of flat sandals. I had come straight from work in Richmond and have made it a rule to not wear heels for less than $120k a year, so there you have it. She was to learn that finding shoes for Frodo feet is a feat. Her driver took us from store to store while I sat in the back and took pictures out the window.

Everyone was pretty stoked after such a stellar performance.
Sunday morning we had salmon and lox at Barney Greengrass's deli, circa 1908.
