Woke at 6am and couldn’t sleep. Minus six outside, but it feels like… well, the cold can do one.
Did yet another shop to fill the fridge with things.
We are staying here (the ground floor, and basement).
Walked in the opposite direction from the house towards the Hudson River.
We came across the Riverbank State Park so we got a coffee and watched some of the competition that was going on.
Got the 1 train down to 42nd Street. I guess it was a sleeper train.
The Empire State Building was constantly hiding behind other buildings.
A nice lunch at Bareburger. I had an Impossible Burger (a magical vegan thing that tastes like meat). I asked for a white coffee and was told; “We don’t do white coffee, but I can bring you a coffee and some milk.” Well, erm, okay?
After lunch Max went to explore and Jane and me headed up to New York Public Library.
We ambled up towards Central Park and there was a lot of fireman activity, but no sign of anything wrong.
Trump Tower was awash with police presence and concrete bollards. It’s nice to be popular. I thought I would enjoy my First Amendment rights (though, they may not apply to non-Americans, and may not cover flipping the finger towards buildings). Still.
Central Park looked nice in the snow (but then again it’s looks nice in all seasons). Back on the one train back to the house.
