A Day Trip into the Big Apple!

Posted by  on

A day trip into the Big Apple… Going into Manhattan is quite an ordeal these days. Just traffic all around. I decided to take the train into the city, into Grand Central Station… I could have taken the car and found a garage for about $60 in the part of town I was heading. That is just the start, it would have been another $13 for the toll too. The thought of looking for a garage just didn’t excite me at all. So here I was heading over the Tappan Zee bridge to a town called Tarrytown to catch the train…the toll is $5 for now. Parking could be difficult there as it is limited for non-residents. I managed to find one and it cost me $10.50 and the train ticket cost me $20.50. If I didn’t buy the ticket at the machine before boarding, it would cost me an extra $6.00 on the train! I’m $36.00 in before I get into the city and this doesn’t count the petrol that I’ve used for the car.

My friend Pat meets me and we go for lunch and she wanted to treat me and that lunch was $80 for Mexican. No matter what, the cost of living is so out whack. I will say that there is no other city like New York especially at night. I can’t believe I grew up right in the city. It makes me appreciate what I have and had.

    Great pictures, thanks for sharing!!


 My friend Violet Benny invited me to this dinner tonight at the Natural Gourmet Institute. I’m so excited for this meal. #NGI  Before I left NJ, I was taken to breakfast @Amy’s Omelettes. What a place, great eggs and fabulous server to try and help me narrow down what I should order!  One more thing that Jesse Colin Young gave away tonight...this bag of coffee beans which I can’t wait to try it. #jessecolinyoungcoffee #dsminc #tobibar19 #thecuttingroomnyc
 @beacontheatre for fundraiser concert Love Rocks NYC! Waiting for the great music to start...Will Lee is MD and bandleader.  On my way to Monmouth University for a talk with Kenneth Womack. Should be a fun night. Ken talking about Sir George. Martin and me...well...can you guess???  Listening to stories by Jesse Colin Young at The Cutting Room. Feels like the old record days watching him speak. Can’t wait to see him perform. #jesseColinYoung #theyoungbloods #maypang
 Went down to the retail store that sells Nest Candles. I love their giant size diffusers. I won’t be running out of this stuff any time soon! The store is located on 252 Elizabeth Street in NYC if anyone wants to pick up some great smelling fragrance candles.  Here’s a motley crew. We were all at The Cutting Room for a one man play called 3 Egg Creams starring Vince Bandille. This play was inspired by & featuring the music of Lou Christie. Nice way to spend my Valentine’s Day. Left to right: Lou C, Ron (Lou’s drummer), Billy J Kramer, Q104.3 DJ Ken Dashow, me, Eddie & David Brigati (The Young Rascals & Joey Dee & the Starlighters.)  Tobi and I are at the Laurence and Chico Fashion Runway for their Fall/Winter 2019 collection. It’s packed here at Pier 59 at 2pm!
