1- ParksOn Tuesday evening, I checked out the downtown parks and a bit of the Buffalo Bayou.

|Metro Tracks on Main Street (streetcar)|
2 - Union StationOn Wednesday, I decided to check out the old Union Station. I have posted that quick visit on my railroad blog. LINK >
3 - Buffalo Bayou BikingThursday evening was still freaking hot (94 degrees at 6:20 pm!). I walked up to the Bike Barn (just north of the Bayou) but found they were closed- BUMMER! Fortunately right nearby was a spot to rent a "City bike" - kind of clunker but still fun to ride. All the trails were paved and super easy.
I rode all the way to the Lost Pond end and then circled back all the way to the College where I rode into downtown on the Main Street Bridge.
I have some one-handed video footage of the bike ride -- I will add it here at a later date...
Friday night - late! Flying into LaGuardia Airport - there's Manhattan!
|Can you see the Williamsburg Bridge?|
