Marvel Reunion Part 1

I flew to New York City this past weekend! The occasion was a reunion of about 150 people who worked for Marvel Comics in the late 80s to early 90s. To me, that was a special time and a lot of people agreed! I flew in on Friday and met my friend Dawn at a pub near Thompson street. I crashed on the couch and my spare set of keys gave me a lot of freedom to walk around the city.

That's exactly what I did on Saturday! I never walk in LA, so I visited most of my old hangouts in Manhattan. Astor Place then 14th street. Going uptown to Park Avenue south and 33rd st. I lost track of the time and scrambled for a train to 77th st. for a brunch date with friends. I made a mistake and had to walk across Central Park to the brunch.

The brunch was a lot of fun! The photo shows myself, Eliot Brown, Sara, Marie and Steve. Eliot is holding up a banner that Marvel must have used for a sporting event or something.

Everyone split up to take care of their own errands, and I went back to walking. Brunch was over at 12:00 and I had only 7 hours before the reunion that night and karaoke. Oh yes, I said karaoke!

I walk through Central Park whether by accident or intentional is always an interesting adventure. One of the world's greatest public spaces.
