NYC/Times Square/Lunch with Matt Roush

Manhattan! Times Square! Rockefeller Center! All great, but the main purpose of my Wednesday, July 15, trip to NYC was lunching with former student Matt Roush. He writes a column, “The Roush Review,” for TV Guide magazine and appears often as a commentator on “Biography” and other TV shows where knowledge of TV stars is needed.

Matt and I had communicated through the years, but a two-hour lunch was required to catch up on the 30 years since he’d been on both my newspaper and yearbook staffs.

Taking the NBC Studio Tour had been a goal for I’d not found time for it in previous NYC visits. Enjoyable, particularly the historical aspects.

TimesSquare, NYC-July 15, 2009-01

Noise. Lights. Color. Crowds pushing and shoving. Screens change constantly giving the whole area a frenetic feel.

We wandered around in Midtown East and then over to Times Square where so many photo ops await any photographer. My other Times Square pics are slightly X-rated, a couple gals being body-painted.

New York, never the same after the ‘sisters’ hit town

On July 10-12, Doris (adopted sister), sisters Barbara and Nancy, and i traveled by train from Madison, NJ, to Penn Station in New York City. We spent the three days navigating by bus, subway, boat, and taxi as we hit all the major attractions, ate typical NYC fare (hot dogs and pretzels from outdoor stands as well as restaurant food), and saw a Broadway play.

New York, New York…

A trip to New York City, in mid-March! Columbia Scholastic Press Association holds its annual spring convention at Columbia University at that time each year, and my friend/yearbook adviser Sheila attended, allowing me and friends Gerri and Barbara from Oklahoma City to tag along for the six days.
