Samantha and I have traversed all over the city of New York, a midway point to our final destinations in Europe, visiting famous places and not so famous places, meeting knowledgeable characters, and at times, sensing the great differences of this opposite coast. Kind family friends of the Rams have taken us in, offering some familiar suburban comfort after long days in the heat of a pulsing metropolis. Needless to say, the rain today is more than welcome and has painted a different version of the city that I was fortunate enough to see.
