Dinner in New York
Albie and I finally arranged to have a day off together so we could attend a friend's 30th birthday celebration in New York City. We met up with 14 other people at Tony's DiNapoli on Second Avenue and 83rd Street.
After figuring out the train costs, what time we would need to leave to make the train and how much extra money we would have to spend on cab fairs, we decide our best bet was to take the car to the city. I have no problem driving on Manhattan, and we were lucky to find free street parking on 75th Street. From there, we walked to the Central Park zoo to see polar bears and puffins, then up to 83rd to enjoy various pastas and Italian treats.
