One day in New York, visiting the Chess Forum

Since watching The Last Chess Shop in New York City 

I have been meaning to visit the Chess Forum in New York. Yesterday I took a Greyhound to meet with a friend. After a 4-hour and relatively comfortable trip, I reached the city. After meeting with my friend, I rushed to see the place.

You cannot have coffee there. I was told to get a cup of coffee from the cafe at the corner. Like in that short movie, there is not much space. I guess a total of eight tables to play chess. I watched the players for a while. If I had time, I would play but I had to rush back to the bus. I wish I had money to buy a chess set among various interesting ones. They were a little bit pricey for me. Playing chess or watching players playing chess is 5 bucks. It is worthy.
