Saturday in NYC - The Play Allegiance - World Trade Center

The new train station at the World Trade Center
We were lucky to have a very nice weather day in New York City yesterday - 50s - 60s - sunny. It started out with a cab ride from our hotel on 52nd St down to the tip of Manhattan to see the World Trade Center. The new building is 1776 feet tall - and they have build a park and museum to memorialize the Sept 11 Attack. 

After that - we shopped for play tickets. I wanted to see the play Allegiance - featuring George Takei.  We were able to get discounted tickets for $80 each - in the 10th row. Then we took the subway back to our hotel. We had lunch at another Irish Pub - then settled in to watch the FSU football game. 

The game ended in time to walk to the Highacre Theatre on 48th St to see the play. 

Today - we will watch Georgetown and Duke play in Madison Square Garden. Our sons and daughters in law went to those schools - and it is the first time they are playing each other in the Garden and NYC. After the game - we will catch the train from Penn Station - right next to the arena - and go to Washington DC. We will spend a few days there - and return here for the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. Then home.
