Great way to round off the day though, you did well navigating to get there . Shame about the rain, I hope that made a swift departure.

I keep going back to look at the plate of pickles ... ,
Haha they were an interesting 'starter'
That was the only rain we saw though the next day was a bit cloudy and cooler.

We were in section 144, they were good seats
Thank you for reading

Another busy day. Nice walk along the Highline, it's a nice place. I like the look of the walk along the river, another to add to my list!

It sounds as though you all had fun at the game, despite lack of understanding Well done on getting there easily on the trains, great planning.

The river was lovely to walk beside, I would have liked to walk longer it was really pleasant but places to see!

The game was the boys favourite thing, it was a good experience, I still have no clue

I dissuaded Poot from the High Line (It'll just be plants and tourists, said I) - it never OCCURRED to me to use it for crosswalk-avoidance! What I haven't learned from this trippie, I tell ya.

Googling "Manhattan Nose Sculpture" just got me a passel of ads for plastic surgeons - but I also looked at that thing and saw "nose" (with sneeze-guards?). Modern art is not for me.

I showed the cheese shop photo to Poot (MISTAKE! What did I get from him? "Why didn't WE go there? You just didn't want to spend more money on CHEESE. DAD would have agreed." Sigh.).

And you were LUCKY that the Giants had a bag-storage facility. The last time we went to a Vikings game...NOTHING...there were just massive bins to throw out your handbag - after decanting all of its contents into your pockets. Seriously.

When the game was over we saw women rootling through the bins (which by then were also full of beer cups, etc...) trying to reclaim their bags. Regular football game-goers may know the crazy rules...but I think the tickets should show the bag policy in BIG LETTERS.

Yes Iím more more about the practicalities of avoiding crosswalks (they are a pain) than art!
It was a shame I didnít get a toasted sandwich from the cheese shop - next time! I loved Greenwich, this was one of my favourite days of our stay

What a pain about the Vikingís game, so youactually have to chuck away your bags? Nightmare

You did back in 2015 - I was ready with my (classy) clear plastic sack - but a LOT of ladies weren't. You can't even bring a camera case inside NFL stadia these days...

We actually saw a couple of women say to their husbands, "Here - sell my ticket. My bag's worth four hundred dollars - I'll wait for you in the car."

Fab day. The football game looks lots of fun, something I'll look into. I wouldn't have a clue either about the rules of the game but I bet the atmosphere is great!
