Maureen and I are going to New York City for the weekend. Her cousin has an apartment on Union Square that is empty during the weekends, so he lets family and friends stay there. We will drive up to the Staten Island Ferry terminal and take the free ferry to Battery Park. The ferry terminal is a about an hour and a half drive from our house. From Battery Park, we will probably take a cab to the apartment. We may go see the Intrepid Museum which just reopened after an extensive overhaul of the aircraft carrier.
Union Square has a farmer's market every Saturday with over 100 vendors from around the state. I told Maureen that she can select whatever ingredients she wants, and I will prepare dinner with them for her. The apartment building has a lawn terrace on the 10th floor with several gas grills for residents to use, so I may be grilling outside tomorrow evening.
