Manhattan

May 1, 2005

Silvia and I went to Manhattan in May. We attended a surprise 40th birthday party for my brother-in-law Evan. Afterwards we went to a club with my aunt where everyone sings along with the piano player. Old music, like Elton John and Billy Joel. We went to the MOMA. Silvia wanted to go to the top of the Empire State Building, so we endured that. She left the Statue of Liberty for another trip. While in midtown I bought a video camera, the fruits of which are below. The first clip is of us taking in the sights in Greenwich Village.

We stayed in the Comfort Inn on the westside (71st) within a block of Central Park. We took a run on the park drive. On a later day I did some laps around the reservoir. It is clear that the serious runners run the drive, not the reservoir.

The last clip is of us checking out the bouldering in Central Park. The rock, some sort of wavy slate or phyllite, felt greasy, and it had a lot of open holds. Too bad I didn’t bring a chalk bag.
