When I go to Junction Blvd, I overhead Countdown Clock Announcement, "Next Manhattan-bound Seven Express Train is Approaching Station."


I got on front car #1740 of Times Sq-bound <7> Express departed 9:23, arrived Vernon Blvd-Jackson Av @ 9:42.


Next, I walk and almost enter NY Water Taxi's entrance by mistake and after asking construction worker, I made to NY Waterway's East River Ferry.

After that, I spotted school bus flashing yellow, so I thought school bus was going to use Amber Light, however both school buses did not use Amber Light.

Soon, MCI BxM2 pulled over to school bus stop at 82nd-81st Sts, I hit the Metropolitan Museum of Art and went to Alexander McQueens, Savage Beauty to help security guard, manager, supervisior, "NO PHOTOGRAPHY/CELL PHONE IN SPECIAL EXHIBITION." This was so popular fashion show, line could up to 45 minute to 1 hour wait as black line represent line.



After few moments, I went to public cafeteria to eat lunch.


Then, about 15 minutes after 1400, I went back to McQueen to make sure no one wasn't taking picture.


To Forest Glen: Reason, Special Exhibition/Private Collections does not allowed Photography is some objects are from private collection from other states/countries that does not allowed photo, such as academy, galleries, etc.


Next, I left museum and I got East End Av-bound M79 #5602 departed 79th St/5th Av @ 15:21, arrive 79th St/3rd Av @ 15:27.


When I go to Yorkville Branch of NYPL, former 96th St Branch Librian transfered to this library and I was surprise to see her. Susan Buttacio, member of Teen Advisory Group at 96th St Branch. I don't know who does Teen Advisory Group there now.

Since it was rush hour, it was long line and I got on Christopher Columbus boat departed 34th St Pier @ 17:09, got crowded at N. 6th St, arrived Schaeffer Landing @ 17:24. When I got off, there were group of Jewish with their children waiting for ferry ride. It was very tough, because ferry stops at popular places such as DUMBO and WALL ST.

I went to walk to Kent Av exit where I saw bi direction bike lanes on northbound one way street.

Has the MTA customer service center changed? Last time I was there every single rack was stuffed with subway maps and you had to ask at the window for anything else. Did they put more stuff out?


Will be back there in a few weeks!

I think so. Only bus maps that missing are from Nassau County.


They still did not go new SI one yet.


I cannot ask from window, because there's one mean person who wouldn't let me take it.


Other familiar guy at front knows me.

Hicksville LIRR gives out Nassau maps if you ask at the ticket window.


I may choose to help out with Transportation Alternatives in the future...
