On my first full day in New York all I did was walk, and walk and walk some more. I caught the subway back home though.
I decide to go take a look at all the theatre awnings, I remember the first (an only) time I saw them back in 1989, I love them. Then I wandered into the meat packing district, in search of a cafe recommended by Jane, it opened at 12 and it was only 11, so onward I tread.
Down through Chelsea and into the West Village. All are great areas to be in. I realised that I hadn’t eaten and it was 2pm, so i wandered into a diner and ate a meatball sandwich thing with fries covered in cheese. It was awful! The menus here make you curious to try things you would never eat. I must remember to be more careful.

I had a great first day, but I need to slow down, do less walking, I am here for another 12 days.
