New York. Day 5.

Welcome to the last full day in NYC. Hope you've enjoyed the show so far.

The (lovely) day started with a trip down to SoHo. Came across Sullivan Street; I wonder if it's the one which lent its name to the Counting Crows song. Kept walking right the way down to Battery Park. Missed the last Ellis Island boat of the day (it having departed an hour before both the website and TONY said) so, instead, took a Circle Line harbour cruise. Got about 50m away from the Statue of Liberty. It doesn't look as formidable, or feel as exciting, as one would expect.

Back in Battery Park, I happened upon the temporary memorial to those who lost their lives in the WTC collapse. The globe was outside, in the middle of the WTC complex. The battle scars are as a result of the falling debris. Just out of shot, there's an everlasting light.

Went for a Starbucks. Got told off for taking a photograph (of my coffee cup) in there. "Corporate policy", apparently -- although no actual reason was forthcoming, even when I pressed for one. More money for Nero and Costa in future, then.

Headed back up to midtown. Felt like I should see an [off-]Broadway show. Forbidden Broadway, an often cutting skit at the shows and stars elsewhere on Broadway. Entertaining and amusing, if you've a reasonable understanding of musical theatre. It's on at the 47th St Theater.

Rounded off my last night in NY with a trip to Tony Luke's. Had a great steak sandwich, plenty of what passes to be beer in these parts, and watched the Cowboys stage an unbelievable comeback against the Cardinals -- in HD.

On the way back to the hostel, I saw a sign in a deli window.

Day 6 coming soon. m'blog 5440.
