NYC Crime Fiction, Amy Grech

Stayed in Town for Christmas

I'm recovering from a bad cough, so I stayed in town and went to see Molly's Game, based on the true-life story of Molly Bloom, intense stuff! I've never been in NYC for Christmas, I usually go to Long Island to spend it with family, but I wasn't feeling up to the trip on the Long Island Rail Road...

I saw the movie in Manhattan at the Regal Cinema in Union Square; there was a huge line and moviegoers had to wait 30 minutes in the bitter cold for the box office to open. The theater was mobbed! Everyone who doesn't celebrate Christmas and a few who do, seemed to swarm the place...I had Chinese food for dinner and texted Merry Christmas to family.
