They told me you can’t go to New York without having been to Times Square. Our home office is located there, my favorite tv station is there, and all those giant billboards in neon lights!
My aunt and my godson came to meet me and my friend there. We went to dinner at Olive Garden for three times more I would have paid to eat in one of their restaurants in Chicago and without a wait. But they told me, it is because we were in Times Square. Like it is the mother of all excuses. We waited for over an hour to get seated and thank goodness there was no wait in the bathroom unlike the coffee shop we went to earlier.
And yes, they were right. Times Square doesn’t sleep. It was so alive and vibrant. The theatre district is there and almost everyone you hear speaks a different language. A melting pot!
