A Traveler's advisory was issued today for Long Island and NYC. Today's test run into the city was frankly disappointing. The 8:26 train was FULL, old geezers headed into the city for some event. At Penn I filled up my metrocard and headed downtown for breakfast and shopping detail. After a cozy breakfast at Mercer Kitchen, on the way to the first store I realized my foot was already on the verge of pain with every step. My purchase was already bagged (dunno why I called ahead, but in retrospect, it was genius) then cabbed it back to Penn Station.
