This past December, my wife, son, and I visited New York City for a wonderful mini-vacation of three days and two nights. Although I was born in New York and have gone back for many a wedding, Bar Mitzvah, and funeral over these past many years, this was the first time I had gone back as a tourist. We visited Times Square, Rockefeller Center, the Metropolitan Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Bronx Zoo. Not bad for just three days! Late one night on the Brooklyn Bridge–near midnight, as I recall–I crossed paths with a friendly young jogger on the Brooklyn Bridge. When I mentioned being a native New Yorker who was visiting after a long absence, his quick but warm reply was, “What took you so long?”
