Weekend Kidnapping *UPDATED*

Sort of.

This girl is taking a bus trip with an artist collective this weekend. The organizers tell you what to bring (this week: clothes you can get “very” dirty and your best singing voice) and where to meet, but NOT your destination.

I know what you’re thinking, but pray that I return with my knee caps, more importantly, with eyebrows. Pa-ka.

*UPDATE*

STOP 1: The pristine part of the Bronx: Waver Hill in Riverdale. Then it starts raining…

STOP 2: The grittiest part of the Bronx – down a steep, muddy hill to an abandoned subway station, featuring some of the area’s oldest graffiti.

STOP 3: The tip of the Bronx: SUNY Maritime College

STOP 4: The Best Italian Ices (Are In Queens)

STOP 5: Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival in Corona Park.

STOP 6: “NOT HOME”: lounging, beers, food. All documented by a reporter who followed us the entire day. Then…

Wee into the night, the group ended up trekking 20 blocks to the reporter’s grandmother’s apartment on the Upper East Side. The 76-year-old grandmother was a lovely, liberal-minded woman, who graciously welcomed 12 people into her home¬†after midnight and insisted we make ourselves comfortable. She told us stories like the little children we were and expressed how young she felt. However, the best part was the trekking, boombox blaring, through the old guard UES like the circus just came through town. Best.time.ever.
