What a great weekend in New York! And a very full weekend.
I flew up on Friday afternoon with Jonathan. We checked into our hotel and met Kevin, who had taken the train up from Philadelphia, then took the subway up to 165th street to the brand new Yankee Stadium. We had great seats in the club level, right behind home plate, and watched the Yankees come from behind to win in the 9th inning.
Here's Jonathan doing his famous creeping-into-the-side-of-the-photo-pose at Yankee Stadium.
The next morning, we spent the day at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art. Leaving there, we had margaritas and yummy tacos. Then we got ready for to see 9 to 5 on Broadway, the new musical with a score written by Dolly Parton.
The next day was AIDS Walk New York, which was really the reason I was in town. That morning, I got up for an early breakfast with Hilary Duff and other celebrities before walking the 10K. Over 45,000 people walked. It was an unusually cool day, but the rained held off.

Corporate Sponsors of AIDS Walk New York had the chance to be a part of the closing bell ceremony on the New York Stock Exchange. I got to be on the trading floor at the end of the business day to watch them ring the closing bell. I took the above picture with my Blackberry.
