New York City: Scenes from Day 1

Early 3:45 a.m. Monday morning wake up and a quick ride to the airport for our 6:45 a.m. flight. We were able to use our priority passes to gain access into the Alaska boardroom lounge for some light breakfast items, and then it was onto our gate for our 6 a.m. boarding call. We touched down into New York’s JFK Airport just before 3 p.m. and after collecting our bags we rode the Air train and subway into Penn Station. It was a bit of a harrowing speed walk to our hotel because we were surprised to come into a downpour of rain, but we were able to check in by 5 p.m. a little wet and a little hot from our walk. Here are some highlights of our evening in the Big Apple…
