I woke up bright and early to go to the Secaucus toy solider show this morning. Few things can get me up at 6:30 on a Sunday morning to get myself to, of all places, the New York Port Authority, but this is one of them. It’s neat walking through an all but empty Times Square on a Sunday morning. There’s a thrill that comes from having the city to yourself, if just for a few fleeting moments. This is known as the Cabin Fever show because it falls in early March toward the end of winter. The crowds seemed bigger than usual because the big Hackensack show was cancelled last year due to Hurricane Sandy. I took these quick pics on my cellphone. The first is a public service announcement posted to the Port Authority stairwell. It caught my eye going up the escalator, and I of course had to back track to see what it said. The latter is the Manhattan skyline taken from across the Hudson. I was on the #129 bus at the time.
