Brooklyn & the Mets

sunny 32 °C
View Poland and Princess on Deb Godley's travel map.

An uneventful and only slightly late flight to JFK via Frankfurt. Uneventful is always good when it comes to international travel. Nice 3.5 hours in the airport lounge, including food and rest. We could have even used a sleeping pod, but we chose not to. Luggage arrived after only a small delay and we Ubered to our hotel in Brooklyn. Significant difference in the cost vs Uber in Poland about 4 times the cost for a similar time/distance.

First a few pics from my Sunday morning walk through downtown Brooklyn to the river. You can just see the Brooklyn Bridge in the background.

In the afternoon, we enjoyed cheering on the Mets to victory over the Phillies, including a home run and a good hitting game by both teams, although the Mets posted a shutout.

Near Citi Field where the Mets play is Flushing Meadows Corona Park and the site of the 1964 World’s Fair. You might recognize the towers from the Men in Black movie.

Did a few loads of laundry at a great place around the corner, so we are all set for our cruise, with clean clothes and everything.

Next post from Caribbean Princess, which will be our first on that cruise line.
