In doing some mid-winter housecleaning, I stumbled across some old MetroCards in a drawer. Then a few more in my ID case. And a few more. Finally, I just had to compile, record and toss.
In December, my favorite out-of-towner came for a visit and led me to a New York activity so out of my norm that it hadn’t even made my city bucket list: a helicopter ride around Manhattan.
Yes we were surrounded by tourists and yes a lot of money was thrown down for a short ride, but it was beyond worth it to have such a view of this crazy landscape. And if you happen to catch it around sunset, as we spontaneously did, then all the better.
