LUNCH at the New York Athletic Club

The TAP ROOM……less formal than the dining room……..is perfect for lunch.  You have to be with a member………as no cash is accepted…….it goes on your club charge……[and you will need your stockbroker …..to pay for it.]

CHARLES..…..bartender here for 37 years……remembers who drinks what.

I had an alcohol-free beer…….KALIBER

All of these dishes were delicious …..but the NY STRIP……..over the top.

Desserts are a rather simple affair……..as was the coffee.

 

The SUPER BOWl and Tom Brady

 

KICK OFF…………


 TOM BRADY lived here…………but now someone else does.

NYC MARATHON • 2016 Handicapped, Wheelchairs and Bicycles

I have so much admiration for Marathoners with disabilities and their volunteer guides……it is such a special accomplishment that they achieve.

Their rallying point after the Marathon is in front of my apartment……..lots of volunteers are there to help them into their wheelchairs and assist them in whatever their needs are.

 

NYC MARATHON • 2016 Runner #556

After running 26.2 miles……………the thing to do is PULL UP A CHAIR.……….rest those weary feet on Columbus Avenue and listen to a tape while you wait for family and friends to find you.
