New York, New York, a helluva town.The Bronx is up, but the Battery's down.
The people ride in a hole in the groun'.
New York, New York, it's a helluva town!
From musical 'On The Town'
We're just back from New York and, like the song says, it is a helluva town. It's full of characters and I like that. You could hop down 5th Avenue in your p.j.s, with bananas sticking out of your ears, and no one would pay much attention. You might get a thumbs up or laugh, but that's it. (No, I didn't......I never wear fruit - I think it's so overdone).
This visit we had planned on skipping a Broadway Show and taking in a comedy club instead. But, being right in the area of the Schoenfeld Theatre near curtain time, and with a play starring James Earl Jones, Angela Lansbury, John Larroquette, Candice Bergen and Eric McCormack among others, we couldn't resist seeing Gore Vidal's "The Best Man".
Luckily for us there were still seats available. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the 2-1/2 hour play which seemed to be over in a flash (the true test of having a good time).

Our seats were great! I don't think there are any bad seats in this theatre which, incidentally, is beautiful.

And in the middle of it all, George M. Cohan.
What could be more perfect?
