Reunion Day Three
SUNDAY: We walk with a large group of people to Barney Greengrass. It's not really a deli, it's an appetizing store specializing in smoked fish of all kinds. I have a bialy the size of a dinner plate with smoked whitefish salad -- heavenly -- plus more truly terrible weak New York coffee.
After breakfast some people have to leave, but 20 of us walk together and reminisce more. We walk the same route through Central Park to Fifth Avenue, but this time we get to see the Greek Independence Day parade. It's very New York, with hundreds of spectators lining the sidewalks and lots of parade marchers in traditional Greek clothing.
We say tearful goodbyes to everyone and thus ends the reunion. G and I have the rest of Sunday, Sunday night and Monday to do more Noo Yawk!
