New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 11, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas Herald-Zeitung g Sunday, May 11,1997 g SAThe Big Apple offers the world at your fingertips I just got back from a trip to the “Big Apple.” There’s no place on Earth quite like it. I’m 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 are 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 “Showboat.” 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 one-half 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 $65 to $90 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 $10 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 $25 and $35 depending on traffic. Kennedy is out-of-sight. Be sure, however, that you    can understand what the bus drive is saying so you don’t end up in the wrong place. Seniors should always remember to ask for senior discount. Most places these days give a IO to 20 percent senior citizens discount. Don’t forget. This trip I was able to get tickets for a terrific, new play, “Play On.” It was a new musical about a short period of Duke Ellington’s life, and, of course, featuring Duke Ellington’s 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 world’s 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, N.Y., 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 Hmm students from Smithson Valley High School placed seventh in the Stats FFA Range & Pasture judging contest held recently on the campus of TaHeton State University.

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 d’hotel 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 first-run movies. I love those great, old-time movie houses — remember how they used to all look like the Majestic. The still have some in New York and they’re magnificent. They are real theaters, not those little 2 by 4 things we go to today where the acoustics are so bad you can’t understand half of what’s 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. It’s 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 surprise), and a great meal in Greenwich Village and a visit to Balducci’s, one of my favorite gourmet shopping stores and one of the best I’ve ever seen. But that’s O.K. because I’m 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 Carpenter’s article in May’s Modem 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 don’t take the risk, you won’t 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 everyday.” Those are my sentiments exactly — so go ahead and do something, even if it’s ridiculous. It’s better than doing nothing. Attention: CD Buyers! (Marie Dawson writes a weekly column of topics of interest to senior citizens.) Recently Moved? Getting Married? New Baby?
