I love being back in NYC with educated articulate neighbors. In fair their is a brilliant Enlishman in my building and my coworkers are great. I am in the Beakerkin library and planning to get a Staten Island Yankee game. I will leave as the Matt Drudge radio show comes on the air on Sunday.
I will see the Strand book store and my favorite haunts. I do not miss the losers in Union Square Park. My first clue I was home is when WABC radio was on my radio. The John Batchelor show was ny first sound of home.
I love hearing the accent and the energy . My first night was by my sister in NJ and I got lost in Paramus. The local police guided me towards the turn off on the last ten miles. I do not have the stamina to drive more then three hours without a rest.
I will have Jewish food for dinner. I will dine in an ethnic resturant probably the Kiev on Second Avenue before I go home. I will stop by Ground Zero and pray for those who lost their lives.
Sometimes one has to leave NYC to learn to love it.
