This morning I had a little kid standing near me with his little sister and parents. Overhearing the conversation, it turns out that the dad used to live in Manhattan years ago. The family was in town on vacation.
It started off with them jumping on the train. Dad told the kids where to hold on, [...]
Alright. I admit it. I had to ask for directions today on the subway. I’m not terribly proud of it either.
We had company in town this weekend, and went downtown to the Seaport, etc. We were going to take the 2,3 down, but that got all messed up because uptown, the trains stopped running for [...]
After a short holiday hiatus outside of the city, we’re back in the NYC.
SUBWAYblogger tries to get back to the city early. Right after Christmas though New Years happens to be one of the best times to be in the city.

There was a large group of what sounded like Swedish tourists on one side of me. Then on the other end were a bunch of Germans. There’s definitely no mistaking the German language.
I wonder if this is [...]
The freshmen are in town. I’ve seen a lot of tour groups riding the subway. I know they are tour groups because one kid has a t-shirt on that says “orientation leader.”
I guess part of the orientation process is learning how to get around the city. If so, that’s pretty cool that they take the [...]
