The 1st of 7 days in New York

Paul enjoying coffee in Time Square.
We flew overnight from LA to New York and was amazed at how quick and easy it was to catch the train from JFK into Penn Station. Well, I say easy because of the helpful and patient attendant helping us with the ticket machine. We all had a good laugh anyway!
Help came again as we popped out of the ground right in the middle of Seventh Ave. I must have been holding the map upside down! I was wondering do we go left or right and another kind local pointed us in the right direction of Downtown. Our hotel is walking distance in Chelsea with a bonus of free internet, a comfortable room and a view of a very interesting brick wall. It's funny but I actually don't mind the brick wall, there are very old steel shutters on the windows which must hold a thousand stories of the depression and a lifetime of secrets. I think there is inspiration for a Zentangle in that brick wall!
Whenever I have seen a photo of Time Square, I would think that one day we will sit on those red chairs, people watch and have coffee! Tick that off the list too!
