DC and NYC here I come

I'm going to be in Washington DC and NYC in a few weeks -- I'll be in DC on the 15th, though I get in kinda late in the afternoon, and then my BFF and I are heading up to NY on the 17th for a couple days up there, returning to Washington on Sunday the 19th. I leave for home late in the day on Tuesday the 21st.

So with that schedule in mind, I wondered if there's anyone who feels like meeting up. I'll have my friend with me in NY, but he's what I call fannish adjacent -- he's a fanboy without really being in fandom, and he's well versed in all my current obsessions, so he's safe for fannish meetups. I haven't made a hotel reservation yet but the place I'm looking at is near Times Square. I'll probably be in a couple different places in the city in Washington.

I don't have a lot of plans other than to hang out with my friend and see some places I haven't been to before. I want to see the High Line when we're in NY, but that's my main focus besides shopping because I always love shopping. So that leaves me with meetup time, for once!

And I don't have much for the positivity meme day 3, but I'll use this, I guess.

1. Got my plane tickets for the trip.

2. Am going on a trip, which, since my plans with the BFF for Hawaii in October fell apart due to his life issues, is at least something to look forward to.

3. Uh, made nominations for both Yuletide and Festivids that are adjacent to my current obsession with all things Winter Soldier.

I could totally meet you either place--or even ride along with you to NY, since I'm in between. Don't want to intrude on your BFF time, though, so let me know which would be more comfortable!

Cool! So I will be in a hotel that's farther away from Dupont Circle than I wanted to be on the 15/16th, and then will be …somewhere, I don't know the neighborhood, but it's 24th street, on the 19/20th. I leave pretty late in the day on the 21, so that's a possibility too.

I'll send you mail -- I would be happy to have a ride along for the train if you really wanted to do that -- though that's a pretty short ride, isn't it? Anyway, the first hotel has a restaurant, and I'm sure the second one does too, as they're both higher end hotels. Or we could meet up somewhere, too. It's been a few years since I've been to the city so I'm sure a lot of what I know is gone or changed.

I've been largely offline for the past month, so I'm late to reply.
I'd be happy to meet you in NY, at your convenience.

Yay! I still have zero idea about when we'll arrive, and I always have this niggling doubt about my friend crapping out of me (I was originally going to Hawaii this month with him, but he had to cancel), so as I get closer I'll be in touch. We are staying near Times Square, and so far the only major thing we have is seeing the High Line -- I don't know if he'll want to try to see a show while we're there or not.

Got home yesterday after a month with the folks in Florida.
I'll send you via PM my cell phone number.
I love the High Line, and Chelsea Market underneath it, for food browsing.
