I flew in Thursday evening, so I'd be glad to grab lunch with you if I can figure out where anything is located. I'm at The Draper if that helps.

What time do you land? We get into EWR at 900.

We are potentially going to have lunch near Port Authority and then go to the Transit Museum after landing. Were staying in NJ () so we have to come into Manhattan at Port Authority.

Masks are required for the subway.

FriendlySkies, there's an express bus to Grand Central just outside. Cost is $19 cash, or you can use a cc if paying on their app. Trip time for me last week at the same time was 55 minutes. I have no idea how long the trip is using other methods.

See everyone tomorrow morning.

Friendly Skies Tried to send you a PM (twice) , but when I check my sent messages, it doesn't show up, so not sure you got them. I'm free for lunch at any time.

Friendly Skies, Just figured out why you are not getting my replies. It says you have exceeded your storage limit so won't accept any messages. Since I am not a computer type, I'd assumed it was me.

The owner Mitch is a good guy. 4th generation. Warning. You'll spend more than you think.

The arrival at the Aquarium is an estimated time. I just checked the website. The last entry is at 4:00. If we're running late, it will be close. Tickets must be purchased in advance. No ticket sales at the door. This leaves me with a ? Do we chance it? Or do we go to the Brooklyn Museum of Art? They just so happen to be at the Grand Army Plaza stop.

Reminder > high 80's and humid.

Thoughts?

I'd vote for the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Running around NY today was hot work today and tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter by 6 t o 8 degrees.
