has NYC returned to normal? Are people going to the movies? Football games? Restaurants?

Well, I Don’t live in NYC so I don’t know what’s going on there.

I did go to see Funny Girl on Broadway in December and the theater was packed as was the restaurant but overall Times Square was not as robust as it usually is around the holidays.

I haven’t been in a movie theater since before COVID and I guess I am not alone because 2 out of the 3 theaters near me have closed. I actually prefer watching movies at home because if I don’t hear something correctly I can rewind and listen again. If it’s a movie like The Banshees of Inisheren I can put the closed caption on because Irishmen tawk funny!

My favorite restaurants seem to be doing well. They seem to always be packed on the weekends. A new restaurant just opened and I can’t wait to go but I will wait until the “newness” wears off and the crowd diminishes. It’s actually not new new. It’s a third location for a restaurant that has been in the county for a long time.

Watching the Jets and/or Giants the stadium seems packed.

Life is pretty much back to normal here except for the movie theaters.

They seem to be shooting films or tv shows more and more around here.

Today when I went to play Pickleball they were all over the place.
