Remember that commuter train I mentioned in the previous entry?  Well, it runs once an hour on the weekends and costs $9, one way.  Parking is only $5, for all day!  Total travel time from the Croton-Harmon station to Grand Central was just under 40 minutes. 

On our arrival we gawked like tourists; because,after all, that is what we are!  Most of the time I would make the argument that we are temporary residents or even visitors but in this case, we are tourists!  We had a handy Frommers guide that I had picked up off the sale rack months ago in Erie, Pennsylvania.  Exiting Grand Central Station, we had a vague 'plan' that quickly fell apart.  We did what we had always wanted to do - walked around.  In fact, my handy pedometer app showed that we logged just over 10 miles.  We had a ball. But were very happy to grab a seat on the train and let someone else do the driving!  And, having the final drive from the station to home be less than 5 minutes was more convenient than I could ever put into words!
