A Little Before

We haven't been to this restaurant for many years. The food is still good, but the view from the enclosed rooftop, which was the draw back when we visited before, has changed substantially.

Before there was nothing out there but the water, the cacophony of the Financial District of Manhattan, and New Jersey, but now, shipping containers and giant cranes to lift them off of ships fill the horizon.

When we ask our server if she knows when all this came in, she says, "Well, I've only been here about five months, so... before that?"
One year ago: Strangers in the Crowd
Two years ago: Plans and a Carpet Spoiled
Three years ago: The Road Is Actually "Polhemus" But the Rest Is Probably True
Four years ago: The Government Sure Do Take a Bite, Don't She?
Ten years ago: Unresolved
