Chris, I loved watching that work in progress. Each year I have wanted to go to the show and this year, I really have a reason to get there. Congrats!

Thank you so much Blayne, Derek, and Peg!

If you get a chance to see the show I highly recommend it Peg. The work is always spectacular, such a treat. It's a beautiful venue, a class act all around.

Chris, I think this is the year I will finally make it. Last year you told me how easy it is to get to by taking the train from "upstate".

It's pretty easy Peg. If you go to MapQuest it will show you where Penn Station and Grand Central Station are, and where the National Arts Club is. Just type in 15 Gramercy Park South, NY, NY 10003. Penn Station and Madison Square Garden are the same place, though I'm not sure if you would end up at Grand Central Station....I don't know how it works coming from upstate, does it take you there? If you end up at Grand Central Station then you would just come down Park Avenue directly to 20th, a bit more of a walk but very direct. A taxi is always an option..... easy enough.

;thumbsup: *****

-> the National Arts Club is the building ( there won't be big signs or banners :cool: ) across the street from the CL of the south length of the park .
-- back to Penn Sta , the doorman can call a good cab ...

Congrats , Chris !

Thanks Chris and Ed. It would depend what train I take. Amtrak goes into Penn and MetroNorth goes to Grand Central. Amtrak is closer to me, but quite a bit more expensive. Either way, I'm looking forward to it. (and there's always the bus to Port Auth.)
