At SFO airport now, catching the 10 PM redeye to JFK, arriving 7 AM. I love to do it this way, arriving in the Great City at dawn. Just after crossing the Hudson, my pulse starts pounding. Now THIS is a city. I’m hopelessly in love with it. I can’t sleep even a bit on airplanes, but I don’t take naps, rather stay awake until bedtime that night, and, voila, I’m into east coast time.
I’m going to the BEA big book convention (and exploring city with new camera, seeing friends, seeking adventure). Staying at hotel in the Village, old building, I’m excited by this.
Any tips on NYC? Coffee, food, music, whatever?
