Left home in Staten Island at 8:40 a.m. and arrived at 1st Avenue & 47th Street at 10:30 a.m (see above photo). United Nations building in the background.
Was suppose to meet group there that I signed up with on Internet, but so many people, I couldn’t find them. People arriving very fast. Struggled through the crowd. Bought a couple of pins as souvenirs. One says “Women’s March” and the other says “Trump Not My President.” Moved through growing crowd of now thousands of people until I could get to the #6 subway at 51st Street.
Planning to take subway to Grand Central & then the Midtown library before heading home on #10 bus, which I can get right across the street from Midtown library and takes me only a block from my apartment in Staten Island. Since, I’m 74, my stamina seems to be on the decline. When I arrived on 42nd St., outside at Grand Central,the crowd consisting of men, women, children and many families, was so big, moving through them was difficult. There was no way I would ever make it the few blocks to the library, not just because of the crowd, but because streets were blocked off. Decided to go back into Grand Central Station to catch the #6 train to go downtown where I could also catch the #10 Express Bus home.
When I re-entered Grand Central Station from Vanderbilt Avenue, I couldn’t believe it. I’ve never seen Grand Central like that. This was actually the highlight of my day. I had my camera with me all this time taking photos.
All & all, one of the most exciting experiences of my life.
