A Night at the Museums

I’m going to this event tonight. I really can’t wait. For four hours, 14 museums downtown will be free to visit. I don’t see how I can make it to them all. I could skip the ones I’ve already been to, but that would take away only 6. How is it possible that there are so many museums I haven’t gone to?? And besides, I don’t want to skip those. Some I haven’t been to in a long time. And even though I go to the Municipal Archives a lot I can’t skip them! I love them!

I just did the math. It’s simply not possible to go to them all, alas. I subtracted time for walking, and that would leave me a mere 13 minutes at each museum. My new plan: I’m going to try to make 10. Wish me luck!

A restaurant sign. Where was I? 23rd Street, I think.
