A whole city at your feet

Magnet #933 - Spring Street

Another one of my tile magnets from the MTA. Love them. They're so little, and cute! And you know someone's making a mint from a really cute idea. Plus? Hello! Recycling of old Transit maps! Green!

I've said it before, but I love this city's public transit system - yes, we're under budget cuts; yes, some of our bus stops are smelly and the trains can be unclean; yes, it's not air-conditioned. But, dudes, where else can you go anywhere in this city - anywhere in the five! boroughs! - for $2.50! Plus a transfer!

Like, today, there was so much going on in town - and most of it free. It's why I love this town.

The Brooklyn Book Festival would have been cool. Broadway on Broadway would have been fun, if not soggy.

But today, I went back to the Paley Center, for their Fall TV previews, and of course, now have a few more shows to add to the dance card below. Superslim pickin's this year, I think, and I can't really figure out why.

Possible additions emphasized below, based on yesterday's and today's screenings. And some shows look like they'll be relegated to online viewing, based on the latest TV Guide fall schedule. Sheesh.
