And it didn't help with the NJ parks shutdown; I suspect we got more visitors from that too.

I was in NYC for less than 24 hours on the 2nd into the 3rd, in order to see a concert of "Doonesbury" at 54 Below, directed by Mark Falconer and music directed by Will Buck. (We were in CT working on clearing my mother in law's house).   We flew home out of LGA on the 3rd and traffic was much lighter than usual, especially crossing midtown (we started from the west side). The plane however, was full with a standby list, and Will and I were unexpectedly bumped to first class (we are both Platinum on AA thanks to our trip to London/Sweden last year, and to Hawaii).

The concert was a lot of fun--I didn't know the score at all, though I read the comic strip for many years--but wow the food and beverage at 54 below has gotten expensive.  The vocal parts seemed complex to me (me=not a musician) and I was impressed the team was able to pull it all together in just a few weeks of scattered rehearsal.

 Love your new picture, Diane!
