For our last full day in New York, Sylvia and I concoct an ambitious plan to visit Grand Central Terminal, peruse its shops and entertainment, and perhaps even embark on a short train journey. But our plans are thwarted, because the rain is far to heavy to walk the distance and we can't get a cab because of the high demand from United Nations delegates in town for the gathering of the UN General Assembly. Resigned, we hit the closest diner for breakfast and spend the rest of the day catching some sleep for the early morning flight that lies ahead.
New York is by no means a dirty city, but this is, in fact, how they put their garbage out. Trash piles are everywhere, and Sylvia insists on a photo to ensure we show as many facets of the New York experience as possible.
