The lectures and discussions at FEE ended a little earlier than normal today (we did not have any lectures or discussion after dinner), so 5 of us decided to take the train up to NYC for the evening. We wandered all around Manhattan and had a lot of fun. We didn’t know each other before Monday, so it was nice to get to know each other.
Here is what we did: We took the train from Irvington to Grand Central, then walked 30 blocks from Grand Central to the huge Strand book store (42nd to 12th, but probably a few more since we had to go over a few blocks, too). Books there were well-priced, so I bought 3 that I found: two books on various an-cap topics, and a book on faith. We then walked up by NYU, then found a pizza place and ate some really good New York style pizza. This was around 10:30. We walked around the NYU area a little more, then found a subway and took it to Times Square, where we walked around for a while, then make our way back to Grand Central in order to catch the last train back to Irvington.
I left my SLR camera at home, but I borrowed Dad’s point and shoot for the trip, so I took some photos during the adventure. View the gallery. (I appreciate you letting me borrow your camera, Dad!) Here is a quick shot I took at Times Square:
