Thursday, June 9th – the Big Apple

Today is a lay day for an excursion to midtown Manhattan.  The New Jersey PATH station is conveniently located within a few minutes walk of Newport Marina.  For a small one-way fare of $1.75 per person, this subway provides rapid access to 33rd and Broadway, just a few blocks north of Times Square.

The Carnegie Deli at 57th and Broadway serves up a giant corned beef sandwich and dill pickles for lunch.  Look at the size of this monster.

While we were visiting the Museum of Modern Art, the Queen of Norway and her security entourage arrived to say hello.  Obviously, the word is out on the voyage of Cutter Loose in Oslo.

Our evening entertainment is a very professionally staged performance of the musical Wicked at the Gershwin Theater.  We are fortunate to secure 4th row orchestra seats.  The two female leads are simply brilliant.  This production exceeded our expectations.

By the time we arrive back at Newport Marina after the show, it is well after midnight.
