NYC spots

I just go to the Saugerties Lighthouse. Things are going great- Patrick picked me up at the Albany airport- we stopped in DT Saugerties to pick up some supplies and eats for dinner. We headed out to the Hudson on a sailboat and had couple of Saranac Pale Ales. We got back and had bbq w/ fresh fish, garden vegetables, corn, fresh mozzarella, olives. Yum. The Lighthouse is a trip- there is only one power line that goes to it, and it can run the fridge, the wireless and just a few lights. Those high efficiency bulbs come in handy. I will give out some more interesting details on this spot when I get a chance to type more. I am going to hit the hay in a sec here.

So we are headed into the city tomorrow. A bus likely. Below are the places I am going to try to check out while in NYC. I will only be able to hit a fraction of these places, but I have until Friday. We will be heading to Philly on Friday to check out a few more things. I will post up the itinerary later for that.
