New York is for... everyone
I love the place. It's not just the endless familiar sites - anyone not heard of Broadway, Central Park, Greenwich Village, Times Square, The Empire State Building, Ellis Island, Harlem, and on and on...?
It's more the energy of the place. Crowded, everyone walking or taking the subway, towering buildings, movement and noise. And then a little closer you find people who talk to you, sometimes really interesting characters, sometimes just chatty, sometimes just friendly.
The arts? Best available. We did a Broadway play by Noel Coward, Blythe Spirit, The Met, The Guggenheim and more.
Food? Oh my God. Just browsing in Zabar's is enough reason to visit NY.
Architecture? Even a Lower Eastside tenement is a gem.
Here are a few snaps.
I want to go to NY. I can't believe I've never been.
I'll be looking for you next time.
Nevertheless, I missed your call - I live close enough to Woodstock (hint) and would have been also able to come down to bother you for an hour or two. Perhaps next time...
All that said, I am glad that you have had a terrific time in NYC.
