September 2, 2005 (Friday)
It was a long walk. I went to the Independent Press Association this morning at 10:30 via the subway.
Anthony Advincula, a Filipino (UP 1995), briefed me about the IPA.
After the meeting I walked to the Empire State Building and went up to the observatory. I walked all the way to Central Park on Fifth Avenue then back to the Hotel on Broadway. It was a half-day walk but it’s worth the exercise to get the feel of the city.
I visited the New York Public Library, the main library and the smaller one, browsed books at Barnes and Noble, visited the Philippine Center and prayed at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral.
In an hour I’m watching “Lion King” in Broadway.
