Journal Entry:
We had a list of "New York" things to do: The Metropolitan Museum of Art; New York Pizza, fresh roasted cashews, fresh bagels, and camera shopping. We'd planned on taking the morning to do as many of these as possible. We got them all done (The Met was awesome, the pizza was very good, the nuts were even honey roasted, four kinds of bagels, and I bought a Minolta Vectris 40). However, we it was a little later than late morning when we were done. I think we were on the George Washington Bridge (Manhattan to New Jersey) at about 8:30pm. Survived another day of driving in Manhattan, actually started to like driving like this - I even used my horn!

The plan was to camp in the Catskills. We spent close to an hour around midnight looking for a campground (Woodland valley) on SR28 before exhaustion forced us to give up and drive back to I87 to find a cheap hotel.
