Not sure if the guy above is homeless or had a very late night. He was sleeping in the corner very peacefully, while people trooped past on the subway platform.
It's been chilly recently, a sudden onset of Fall. Usually New York experiences Indian Summer, a warm spell in the middle of September that sometimes lasts through October. Hopefully it will happen this year.
The US Open is going on in Flushing Meadow, Queens. Mark and I watched a little bit last night.
All throughout the match between Nadal and Fernando Gonzalez, brisk winds sent the ball flying this way and that. The game was finally suspended because of the weather.
The US Open is played outside Manhattan, just a subway ride away. There is so much going on in the city, however, you're not aware that anything special is going on while it's being played.
Tickets for good seats are expensive. You can get seats for less than $100 in the nosebleed section, but seats with a better view cost well over $500. Each. Most New Yorkers enjoy watching the games on television.
