The last time we went to Plymouth we took I-287 around New York City. But this time we'd be going through around midnight, so Brian (who drove the entire time) said, "Let's drive through the city instead of bypassing it. This may be our only chance!" So we all agreed that it would be a great opportunity. Of course we thought our wonderful GPS would keep us on an interstate or an expressway the entire way. But nope. It took us right straight through Chinatown! I knew something was up when I read - Exit onto Canal Street....
This is the Manhattan Bridge that we crossed.
NYC funny story #1 - When we passed this sign I totally had a brain spasm. When I read "W Broadway" I said, "There is something on Broadway, what is it?" Then almost in unison everyone in the van started laughing at me. Christis's mom, Vickie, said that all she could think of when she saw the sign was the song, "On Broadway."
It felt like we were in a movie! We had to cross the intersection in between the pillars below the subway and everything! We just crossed the street and got straight back on the expressway. But still this small town Ky girl didn't much like being in those neck of the woods!
On Friday we took the girls to Lexington and Concord, MA to visit the first two battle sites of the Revolutionary War. Then on Saturday we went to the film shooting for Monumental Movie and the New England Solemn Assembly. I'll have to do separate posts for each day to get it all blogged!
