Ascent 9 – Drive Into Harlem

I’ve lived in New York City for 3 years now and have gone into the various Boroughs & Manhattan several times. Today, Sue had arranged to visit our friend & artist Lynne in her creative space in Harlem and I came along for the ride.

After the usual rodeo of insanity on the highways out of Queens, we crossed over the RFK Bridge (Formerly the Triboro) into Manhattan. We had entered in the upper portion and were shortly in Harlem, where we were instantly greeted with several emergency vehicles with lights and sirens blaring. I have often heard of this area growing up and it was interesting to be actually driving through it. (Who hasn’t heard of the Harlem Globetrotters?)

The architecture was rather interesting and, as I was the passenger this time, I was able to take a few pictures along the way.

We hung out in Lynne’s cool apartment for a while. The girls worked on some powerpoint stuff while I focused on card readings for the current year and laying the groundwork for tonight’s blog.

Afterward, we got into the car, made a quick stop to pick up Lynne’s guy then headed for the Malaysia Grill at 102nd & Broadway – another first. Konnan ordered for the table and, after several delicious dishes of authentic Malaysian food, it was time to head out of Manhattan and back to Queens.
