New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 11, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldsZeltung p Sunday May 11 0 5A The Big Apple offers the world at your fingertips 1 Kafb n i ii just got back from a trip to the Big Theres no place on Earth quite like it Im always amazed that most of the time you hear every language there is except English It truly is the melting pot of the world If your arc lucky enough to get an English speaking cab driver he will entertain you for the whole ride and believe me cab drivers are a wealth of information When I was in New York last August I stood in line at 48th and Broadway for hours to get a discount ticket to It was worth it The show was excellent However this time I learned from a newspaper boy on the corner of 48th and Broadway that I could walk to the Visitors Center just off Broadway and 42nd Street and pick up free coupons to Broadway shows whereby I could then purchase a ticket with coupon for onehalf the price at the box office Now that is great knowledge The only drawback is that there might not be a coupon that day for the show you really want to see on that day But try again the next day if you can Most orchestra seats go for to these days if you buy them at the box office or from a ticket agent Anyway there are ways to save money in New York and each time I go I learn something different For instance when I made reservations at the hotel this time the reservationist told me that for I could take a Carey or Gray Line bus straight from airport baggage to the front door of the hotel No one ever told me that before Of course you need to check with your hotel to see if that service is available What a savings This is a particularly good Marie Dawson service for seniors Cab fare to LaGuardia the closest airport is between and depending on traffic Kennedy is out ofsight Be sure however that you can understand what the bus drive is saying so you dont end up in the wrong place Seniors should always remember to ask for senior discount Most places these days give a 10 to 20 percent senior citizens discount Dont forget This trip I was able to get tickets for a terrific new play Play It was a new musical about a short period of Duke Ellingtons life and of course featuring Duke Ellingtons music and jazz of the time It was an extremely talented cast and well worth the effort and cost Still speaking of costs Years ago one could ride the Statten Island Ferry for five cents A couple years ago it had gone up to 50 cents Now I understand negotiations are under way to make it a free ferry Many people ride it two to four times a daily 365 days a year so the Statten Island residents are fighting for that one Of course some of the worlds great restaurants are in Manhattan and I love food I love to cook it and I love to eat it One a previous trip I drove all the way to Hyde Park to enjoy a meal prepared in the St Andrews Cafe of the Culinary Arts Institute of America one of the largest FFA winners Photo submitted

Texas 512 3927233 Linda Quaid Certified Optician if cooking schools in the world It was a wonderful experience not only to tour the school and the kitchens but to experience the magnificent food and the elegance of the service All persons maitre dhotel to waiters to busboys etc are learning their art so the service is fantastic This trip I did not go to CAIA but I did get to reap the benefits of their education by enjoying some wonderful food and service at some of my favorites in the city I went to a couple of plays and firstrun movies I love those great oldtime movie houses remember how they used to all look like the Majestic The still have some in New York and theyre magnificent They are real theaters not those little 2 by 4 things we go to today where the acoustics are so bad you cant understand half of whats said Anyway by now you can tell I love Manhattan I love the hustle and bustle and the crazies and all the wonderful sights All you have to do is walk a few blocks in any direction watch the people and you can see the world People walking their dogs on Broadway a man singing at the top of his lungs oblivious to all people arguing people laughing deals being made musicians and dancers performing on street comers Its my kind of town But alas my trip was cut short because I overdid the walking and aggravated an ailing knee joint I had to come home two days early and missed out on another play even though they did refund my money to my and a great meal in Greenwich Village and a visit to Balduccis one of my favorite gourmet shopping stores and one of the best Ive ever seen But thats because Im already planning the next time and who knows what I will see and what I will learn that time Now for all you senior travelers read Liz Carpenters article in Mays Modern Maturity She takes a trip to Ireland in her wheelchair and takes along six canes She planned ahead but she did it She took the chance and she was glad Liz always feels that if you dont take the risk you wont do anything Also as I have said several times before one of Liz famous lines is If you want to stay young do something outrageous Those are my sentiments exactly so go ahead and do something even if its ridiculous Its better than doing nothing Marie Dawson writes a weekly column of topics of interest to senior Attention CD Buyers Recently Moved Getting Married New Baby Give us a
