It was a perfect day for some matinee baseball. I got an incredible last-minute seat in the Ferris Bueller/Cameron Frye Memorial Box at Citi Field. Unfortunately, no foul balls for me.
I finally took my Lensbaby Composer out to it’s first baseball game and was very happy with results. The entire set can be found here.
I recently wrote an article for Yahoo! about the best eating spots outside of Yankee Stadium and Citi Field. Originally, it was supposed to be about the best vendors, but they either a) don’t exist, or b) are just the lousy Midtown/tourist vendors selling dirty water dogs or Nuts-4-Nuts. There are a plethora of fantastic neighborhood destinations for pre-game chow. Give these places a visit.

This past Saturday, my wife and I caught the Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets at Citifield in Queens. The weather was absolutely stunning, we had wonderful seats, and with my Phillies in the thick of the pennant chase, this was going to be a great day. Unfortunately they lost, keeping my record intact of not seeing one Phillies victory at the Mets’ new ballpark. In addition, I really didn’t get many good shots during the game, but, as is the case a lot of times, I was able to get some nice pictures at an unexpected detour. Mistakenly taking the local train, we hopped off at the Junction Boulevard stop to catch an express train. That was a mistake, as the special express trains were NOT stopping at that station. During our layover, I was able to catch the last minutes of sundown over Manhattan.
