Adventures in New York City

 


Visitors: 284

Well, the trip didn’t start off too smoothly. Thanks to some poor Googling by me, we went to the wrong train station at first. Then we missed our train. And we were in danger of missing the next train which would have set us back about an hour and likely would have meant having to skip our planned stop at the HBO Store.

Thankfully, we made it to the correct train station with about 5 minutes to spare and boarded the train headed for New York City!
I had grabbed a copy of Entertainment Weekly, to check out the Game of thrones dvd spread they have in their latest issue. However, despite the issue being dated as April 1st, this was last week’s issue. The one with the Thrones feature is dated April 8th.

I wasn’t aware that EW sends their magazines back from the future. Now I know. Will have to get a copy of the new issue sometime today. Look for a post on it later.
Despite the lack of reading material, the trip to NYC went by pretty quickly. My wife and I enjoyed trying to figure out what system the conductors had with the ticket punching.

It seemed pretty random to us. I think they just like to use their hole punchers as much as they can.
So we eventually arrived at Penn Station, where we met up with my wife’s cousin, and from there took a short subway ride to Times Square and the HBO Shop.

The HBO Shop is tiny. Yet they somehow manage to cram a good bit of merchandise in there. Unfortunately, the only Thrones stuff they have are the t-shirts.

But the costumes and props they have on display are pretty rad. They had some Kingsguard armor, Jaime’s leather ensemble, and what I think was Jon Snow’s Winterfell costume. They also had the Hound’s helm, the dragon eggs, a gold cloak helm and a Baratheon guardsmen helm on display.

Along with a bunch of random scrolls and books and other assorted props. They also had these large video screens looping what looked to be a mash-up of most of the trailers released so far. The only new footage I spotted in there was a shot where Sansa is at the tourney holding her rose given to her by Ser Loras.
