The family started the day by going to the Museum of Television of Radio on West 52nd Street. We saw:
1. Batman episode with Julie Newmar as the Catwoman
2. The Ed Sullivan Show in February 1964 with the Beatles.
3. A James Brown special that was originally on the air in 1968
4. A show about Teenagers on TV series over the past 50 years.
From there we walked to the Times Square area to eat dinner. I originally wanted to go to Ellen's Stardust Diner on 51st Street and Broadway but there was a very long line at 5 PM. As expected there were mobs of people, most tourists, in the Times Square area. Instead of waiting on line we walked to West 38th Street where we ate at Ben's Deli.
We walked to Madison Square Garden and got tickets for the College Basketball doubleheader.
Game 1 - St Josephs beat Boston University 58-53
Game 2 - Hofstra beat St. Johns 63 - 51
It was a shame that the crowd was so small. It seems there is very little interest in College basketball even with 2 New York schools in the finals. At $15/ticket, it was realy a bargain for Madison Square Garden.
