Yesterday, Tuesday, October 4th, was a rainy one in NYC. In fact, it was so rainy that a transformer near my house got flooded and we lost power in our kitchen. But enough about our good times -- yesterday was one of those days where two unrelated yet nonetheless semi-historic events took place that proves this city is and will forever be fascinating.
First, a princess took the ferry -- literally. Princess Anne, the daughter of the late Queen Elizabeth II, came to town for a bunch of events (I guess she's back at work now) and one of her excursions included taking the Staten Island Ferry. Don't worry, the princess is married so I don't think she was traveling to the Forgotten Borough in order to date Pete Davidson. Instead, her highness took in a unique and fascinating view of NYC -- even if it was in a rainy haze. I hope she had a good voyage.
And it all happened on one rainy day in New York City.
