At St. Joseph's Seminary in the Dunwoodie section of Yonkers, countless school buses and press buses blocked the streets as our own bus approached the entrance. Children with their parents, some wearing baseball caps, some wearing straw hats, carried beach blankets and watter bottles. Following them were nuns in their habits and friars in their Franciscan robes. It had the feel of a mini-pilgrimage as the throngs made their way to the grounds.
I'm off the bus and inside the gates now, where it is wall to wall young people. It's an hour and a half wait just to get a hot dog but the mood is good and everyone I've talked to is just happy to be here.
