Went out by bus to Kleins Frock shop, cheap and nasty. Had lunch at automat. Caught bus to 33rd St. I bought a frock, $8 dollars. Had a good look at the shops – fed the pidgeons (sic) – Broadway is some place. Walked down to see the lights at night, quite good.
Started off on our 250 mile trip to N. York, left the camp about 8.30, lovely driving, pulled up for lunch on the wayside. Had a good drive, arriving on the Riverside Drive, and the Hudson River on the other side, cars like ants, about 8 abreast could not move, could never imagine such thick traffic, and we struck it about 6 – New York is an eye opener, the buildings are terrific, after trying several hotels, came to the Empire on Broadway. 2 dollars a night, so we have booked in for a week, leaving next Sunday morning, the foreign legion arrives that day.
