Taxi to Brooklyn
Does anyone watch Sex and The City? When we were in NY I was reminded of one of the episodes where Miranda decided to move to Brooklyn. This was a traumatic experience for her because she was going to be so far away from all that was familiar to her. Part of the episode showed a taxi driver denying her and Cary a ride to Brooklyn.
On Sunday afternoon my parents and I wanted to go see the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir because my dad and I used to sing some of their fabulous anthems when we were part of Covenant Presbyterian Church.
In order to get there we hailed a taxi, and asked him to go to Brooklyn. After a few confused looks and exchanges he reluctantly decided to take us. We hopped in and off we were, over the Brooklyn Bridge and to the other side of town. I also had to help navigate (because I know NY so well) using a map that the hotel concierge gave us. Fun adventures!!
We arrived in time to be a part of the afternoon worship service. Everyone was very friendly and we enjoyed ourselves, except that the service lasted a bit longer than I expected it would.
Afterwards we were on a mission to get a cab back to our hotel in Manhattan. I give props to my dad for getting us a driver. Thanks for being resourceful.
