The Trini-Paki Boyz (probably longish)

I've been in New York for a week but out in Westchester where my daugher is a bit under the weather. I made a break for it today while she was at the doctor. I didn't have a lot of time, so after some compulsory shopping I headed back to GCT. My first stop was Hudson News, where I picked up the New Yorker and went in search of lunch! I had my sights set on the food cart recommended by Dennison. I found it with no trouble and cued up behind a nice young man who was talking to me about what he liked to order. Sounded good, so I followed suit: small chicken, veggies, chick peas, yellow rice with red and yogurt sauce. I asked for lots of red (hot but good). I told him I'd heard about the cart on Chowhound. When he asked what was Chowhound, I whipped out my New Yorker!
Across 43rd there a nice little plaza and there was a combo and singers performing for my dining pleasure! A May/December couple were swing dancing and it was just lots of fun. My lunch was spicy and delicious!
Back to Grand Central I found my train left on track 108 (I think) which is on the level with the food court. How fortuitous! I got an apple sour cream pie at Little Pie Company and settled down to read the Trillin piece in the New Yorker. I savored that, along with the pie, and missed my train! So what! I just read the the article again! On the train I sat next to a young woman reading a yellowed copy of Proust's "Madeleine" book. Somehow fitting. So thanks, Dennison, for the Trini-Paki Boys. And thanks Jim, for Chowhound. pat
