NYC - Day 2

Journal entry, Friday, June 9, 2017, "I think I walked more today than I've ever walked in my life. It was worth it!"

I don't really have a journal but that would be the entry if I did. Even with the use of MTA buses and subway, our phone apps registered about 10 miles of walking. So here is where our feet took us:

First stop: New York City Library. You can read it, but you can't check it out - at least not at the main building.

A very happy place for Mr. Lee

 Salvidor Dali, "The Persistence of Memory"

I have no idea what this piece of art is.
I called it "Red" and enjoyed it.

A bus and subway ride later, we were walking
into Yankee Stadium. #15 for me, 13 for Scott.
One day I'll do a Ballpark post. But not today.

 Looking out to the Bronx.
 After the game, we joined thousands as they
got on the subways. It was a great time as
we discussed and evaluated with fans all around 
us the various ballparks we had all visited. 
Then we got on the most crowded
subway I've ever ridden. I wanted to take a
