Gail and I visited CJ in New York from Friday, March 20, through Sunday, March 22. We drove and stayed in the Holiday Inn Express on Butler Street. We had stayed there the previous year, but then it was a Comfort Inn.

We ate at an Ethiopian restaurant on 4th Avenue on Friday evening.

Saturday we met cousin Dan Holway, Brad's son, for lunch at Toloache, a Mexican restaurant in Manhattan. Then Dan took us on a tour of the NBC studios, where we saw the evening news studio, the studios used by Jimmy Fallen and by Saturday Night Live, and the satellite operations center.

After the NBC tour, we briefly enjoyed the American Folk Art Museum.

Sunday morning, after breakfast at a dinner on 6th Avenue, Gail and I drove back to Maryland while CJ was teaching pilates.
