Whatever you do, don't buy the HoHo bus in advance in NYC

Jump to last reply

This morning on the way to work - 65 degrees and pouring with rain we passed a HoHo double decker bus. There were at least a dozen people on top, wearing matching translucent hooded ponchos obviously provided by the tour company.

I cannot imagine how miserable they must have been sitting there in the pouring (not drizzle or even steady) rain - drenched to the skin. (The rain was so heavy that there were floods in a couple of the Central Park transverses, requiring cabs to drive down the center of the road in alternating directions.) But, since they had paid for the tour they stuck with it. And I can't imagine what they could have been seeing.

We have rain in the forecast for the next 10 days (we somehow seem to have been moved to Seattle) - so don;t make a lot of outdoor plans if you're coming to NYC. It may be a drizzle or it may be scattered T'storms - but it may be another downpour.

(And I imagine the days that are 95 and humid are just as awful.)
