I've only been to The Cloisters on a Sunday, so I do not know whether that makes a difference, but yes, there is free parking available there.

Basically, the representative indicated that this part is known to break off but cannot be replaced alone, an entire replacement harness must be...
Congratulations, zensven42! Lol at "only a 42 weeker" - I had expected to go longer too, based on my previous birth. :)
Congratulations, MomtoJunebugs, and welcome to your baby boy! It is unfortunate that "time limits" are placed on gestation, but I am always especially happy to hear about someone beating the clock. :)
