Newark Penn Station

Traveling back from DC to Newark Penn, I had a few minutes to spare while waiting for my ride. What a gorgeous old bird this place is. Astrological signs, just like in Grand Central. Old wooden benches. Such hope and […]

Travel to McLean

A work trip to McLean, Virginia… and I decided to go Acela. Why not! We love trains. Though the system at Penn Station is a little uncivilized, I must admit. They don’t tell you the gate until moments before boarding. […]
