Another late night leading to another late start. We had breakfast at Bagel Bob's around the corner from E&C's apartment, then headed to Queens to explore the Museum of Modern Image, which is a playground for independent filmmakers like us. Most of the pictures and video uploaded in this entry are from the museum, so be warned, it might be ridiculously uninteresting to non-film geeks.

G was my own personal tour guide, since he seemed to know everything about the objects on display. The interactive media displays were cool, and there was a control room display of live television editing of a baseball game. It was impressive but maddening. We were also treated to a private screening of Le Ballon Rouge in Tut's Fever Movie Palace. This museum has the set of Monk's Diner from "Seinfeld," but it was currently on tour.

We finally left the museum a short time before they closed and headed to the Financial District. We stopped off at Ground Zero, the New York Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and so on.

Then we rushed through Times Square, Rockefeller Center and Grand Central Terminal before heading back to the E&C's for dinner.

E made a delicious salad with strawberry dressing. I'm currently chomping down on a falafel and waiting on C's pot of sangria to be ready. Yes, a pot of sangria, because a pitcher is not enough for us.

Tomorrow the four of us are going to the Jersey Shore and Atlantic City. Fun!
