Back on the bus ...

So if the MegaBus experience back to Buffalo is as good as it was on the way to NYC, I'll definately take it again.

I'm in the very front seat of the double-decker bus, so the view is spectacular.

NYC was a great experience as always. I love this city ... But in small doses. I could never live here.

The conference went well ... And you'll definately hear some of the potential guests I met on air soon ... Some as soon as this coming week.

Some of the guest pitches were great ... And some were bad. But the good more than makes up for the bad.

After the conference, I had lunch at Chipotle (see photo from earlier post). I really wish we had these in WNY. I'd be a regular.

From Chipotle, I jumped the subway to the Bronx to see Yankee stadium. Overall, it was just a stadium, but I'm glad I saw it before they tore it down. More Yankee Stadium pix when I return to Lockport.

From Yankee Stadium it was on to the NHL Store. Loved it. (photos to come)

Then Toys R Us (photo in earlier post with more to come) and then this McDonalds I had heard about on the Travel Channel, I think. It was decadent.

Then I meandered and found an ice rink but it was closed due to rain. :(

My final destination was Harrington's bar where I watched some of the Rangers/Pens game. Harrington's is right next to MSG so it's a great place to watch a Rangers game.

I decided, however, to root for the Pens ... Becuase my good friend Al is in Pittsburgh with his son, who is there for a medical procedure ... So he thought a Penguins win might bring some good Karma.

With that in mind, I close this with something I may never say again ... "Go Penguins."

Toys R Us ...

The Toys R Us in Time Square is always cool. But they haven't changed too much in my last few visits here (the Lego displays are exactly the same).

But this Transformers display really caught my eye. I love the Decepticon symbol (logo? icon?).

Anyway. More to come.

Yankee Stadium

I was too late for a tour, but some guy from the front office snuck me in so I could get a quick pic of the field. More photos of "The House That Ruth Built" later.

This is what I REALLY came to NYC for.

Welcome to Buffalo!

Waiting for the MegaBus at Buffalo Niagara International Airport. (It's late). I snapped this photo cause it amused me. Nothing says "Welcome to Buffalo" like an abandoned luggage cart.
