Yesterday's treks were to the Metropolitan Museum and of course views of Central Park. Last night we saw an off-Broadway show.

Both Mary and Elaine want to spend more time just shopping and looking around. We have been in too much of a rush, gone too many times the wrong way. I feel a lot of tension just from being with a gang.

We went to the roof garden of the Met to see the Christo installation. A great way to view it, but I would have loved to get into the park itself. That didn't happen. Mary and Elaine took off for the tkts place in Times Square and stood in line a long time to get tickets. We got to see Shockheaded Peter, a strange, funny, and very good dark musical. I'd put it in the category of Rocky HOrror Picture Show, just because of the weirdness factor. The music reminded me (and Elaine) of Nick Cave & the Bad Seed's Murder Ballads. Hilarious. Sold out, too, very popular it seems. And what a nice theatre. I much prefer smaller theaters - and this one, the "Little Schubert", qualifies as "little" compared to Broadway theaters, but would be large in my home town.

Today we have a harbor cruise booked. I have tried to call to ask questions and nobody answers their phone. I have the booking made but want to ask more about pickup points and times.

have you ridden the staten island ferry yet? cheap ride & lots of stuff to see on the way there and back. i think it's near battery park.

do you have any time for yourself to explore? soho district is very nice for shopping browsing - lots of funky little galleries, too.

chinatown and canal st. both have interesting shopping and the knock-off lv handbags seem to magically fall off of trucks at the latter place.. *blink*

like vegetarian food? i highly recommend the zen palate at union square - you would love it, judith - great atmosphere and very... zen. :o)

the play y'all went to sounds interesting, although i never heard of it.

what fun - have a good time today, judith!

I did all of those things the last time I was here. Yesterday we managed to get into Chinatown and a bit of Little Italy. I knew there wouldn't be time for the Staten Island ferry, which I enjoyed the last time.

we are hoping to hit one of the veg restaurants today. Thanks for the rec!

We really haven't had time for much shopping. Too much time spent in subway tunnels. And waiting for the NJ bus.
