We bought the cheap seats for the Mets game at Shea Stadium, but decided to stop at the Mezzanine level and take a good look at the stadium from that view. One of the ushers came over to ask for our tickets, but I explained I just wanted my son to see the field from here first. He told me there were empty seats, so for $20, we could sit in the first row directly behind home plate. I jumped at the chance. The Mets lost that game, but that didn't matter, because my son was thrilled. After the game we walked all around the stadium and waited for the crowd to leave. Brian had never been in a major league stadium before, so he wanted to see everything.
After we left Shea, we drove up to the caverns. We stayed in a motel that night and toured the Howe caverns and one other I forget the name of and a few other sites. Here's a picture of Brian and I with our tour group. Can you find us?
HAPPY FLASH BACK TO 1990 HNT!
