The beginning of our journey to NYC was uneventful with a flight from Jackson to Atlanta and then Atlanta to Newark after a short layover. Arriving in Newark, I began to look for the Airtrain, but then found and took the Newark Airport Express service for $16 per person (cash only). We considered that to be a good deal for a 45 minute bus trip into the city center. The final stop on the bus route was at Bryant Park. There is a subway station at Bryant Park (Orange Line). If we had taken the subway, the next station to the north would be about a block from our hotel, Club Quarters-Manhattan. However, we decided to hoof it, with our luggage in tow. The sights and sounds during our 10 minute walk to the north was the acclimation needed to feel the rhyme of the city. Our check-in a Club Quarters was quick and easy and our room was a corner room that was larger than many that I have previously experienced in NYC. There was no view, well, a view of concrete and heat/air units, so we didn’t gaze much at the “view”. A much better scene was a few steps out the front door where we could see the international flag display at Rockefeller Center.
