Since I have 13 different subway lines for my bidding to get into Manhattan I find that I use different lines to get into different parts of the city.
- Need to get up to see the Boys at the Cigar Inn – Take the Q
- Need to get over to the West Village – Take the A, C or E or the dreaded F train
- Got to head to the East Side of Manhattan – Take the 4 or 5 to Grand Central.
- Got to get to Penn Station (Mrs. Trumpet does this when she goes to Jersey) – Take the 2 or 3
Lately I have found that go into Grand Central Station and if you have been there you know that this sucker is huge. About a couple week back UWS Holly posted that she was getting her boots shined. I knew that there was a shoeshine on the lower level but this location was different than the picture. She told me that it was in one of the passageways. I wasn’t really sure where it was until the work wife (the domestic one) showed me one day. Literally (I am not sure which one of you hate that term but sorry) you can walk from the Train platform all the way to 47th street underground and not be in the elements.
So the other day I found the 45th street passageway and since I had to go see one of my Diamond District customers I headed that way. As I walked by I see a kiosk open and I had to take a double take. Are they really re-stringing Tennis Racquets in there? Yep, you can get your Head (see what I did there KLCMan) strung up with fresh catgut on your way to work. That is cool shit if you ask me! Now I had to google where the tennis court is located so I will try to find that on my next trip to Grand Central.
Hey boys I got an old Wilson T2000 can you re-string it for me?
That’s what I love about this city, there is always some shit that just surprises you.
