Travel: Leaving New York

Sometimes I forget how close everything is in the North East.  It is usual and customary to walk 30 or 40 blocks in NY, right? But that trip to LGA or JFK in a cab? Forget that.  I needed to go to Philadelphia after New York.  The old Marc would check an airline schedule. Right.  Not anymore.

From the hotel in midtown (I stayed at the Millennium, but if you have a choice - don't) was an easy ride to Penn Station to catch the Amtrack Acela express train to Philadelphia. $125 for a business class seat, internet, nice work surface? Cheap.

And, at the other end?  the 30th Street Station in Philadelphia.  Beautiful in its own right.

I'll do this again for sure.
