I Was
A Lone Sailor
In New York City

  on the Week End

    of August 12-14, 1955

I had taken liberty from my ship, The USS Kawishiwi AO-146, while stationed in Philadelphia and taken a bus via the New Jersey Turnpike to Penn Station in New York City. Penn Station was huge.

I took a room at cheap hotel near Time Square and just walked around to see all the flashy places. Saw a movie also.  Saturday I took a taxi to the water front and went to the Statue Of Liberty.

      I clumb clear
 to the TOP!

Then I went to Rockefeller Plaza!
Saw Saint Patrick's Cathedral
And there he was, ATLAS, HOLDING UP THE WORLD.
A Mighty Man he WAS???
                          For a finale,
              I Toured the United Nations Building.
                    The interesting thing here was:
             Several limosines had
                               GOLD BUMPERS!
