Altitude sickness

My friend Gabe invited me to a dinner party at a friend’s place up on 155th street. This is far higher than I have ever been in Manhattan (I am not entirely sure it isn’t in another state). I will stop off at Gabe’s (who lives way down on 113th street) for a drink beforehand, and hopefully will acclimatize enough at that altitude before heading uptown. If I should get dizzy or short of breath, the subway is reasonably quick and should allow me to descend at least as far as Hell’s Kitchen before suffering pulmonary edema.

    You should really take a walk in Fort Tryon Park or Inwood Hill Park, up on 208th St. Beautiful in the snow.

    Hey! I love this blog! And, I even got a mention, sort of…Luckily you made it back from 155th St. :-)
