South Street Flyers
Ended up going to the South Street Seaport Museum today. First time since reopening. I was crushed to find out that the Peking is closed forever - we'd finished the galleries by 2:30; we thought about running to catch the 3:00 Pioneer sail but then I mentioned that the real showpiece of the museum's collection was this great old massive four-masted cargo ship and my folks thought that was really more interesting.
Nice to see all the work on the lightship Ambrose but dang - the South Street Seaport without the Peking? This makes me sad.
Well, here were some people at Trapeze School NY. Mom went into the mall to windowshop, TQ & my dad & I decided to grab a table and have a drink until it was time to head uptown.
