NY Bound

My buddy E (bald Korean dude some of you met/played with in December) came to a realization last year that the majority of his non-business trips over the past few years involved me. Banff, Whistler, Vegas a few times, and Israel. Most people would be sick of me and strike out on their own. E? He calls me up and asks where I want to go this year. He suggests Oktoberfest or New York City. I've done NYC a couple times in the past, but wasn't feeling the Oktoberfest vibe, and decided that NY needed me back.

Fast forward a month or so, and it's all booked up. I'm heading out to that little, unimportant island in late July. I hear summer in New York is quite tolerable and not humid and gross at all.

So, outside of the usual touristy things (Empire State Building, maybe go up that Liberty chick's skirt, Guggenheim, MoMA, etc...) what's there to do? Any locals feel like showing a few friends around your podunk hamlet?

Should I bring my camera? Anything photo-worthy that way?

Oh, and I might want to eat whilst there... any good restaurants?

Man, I can't wait to ask people where Hewston street is, and where Times Square is while I'm accepting coupons to comedy clubs. Maybe I can see Bob DeNiro and keep asking if he's talking to me...

At least you have Tim Horton's.

Very awesome! If nothing else, we should do dinner one of the nights you are here. NYC has EVERYTHING, so its hard to point you to anything in particular, but if you have some more specific questions, feel free to ask.

Dude, I've been to NY so many times now and there is NEVAR anything to do. That place sucks, especially the locals.

I keed, I keed.

You'll never leave alive! Someone told me there's muggers here.

Lemme know if you wanna eat in williamsburg. Although Dawn lives by Smith (I think - correct me if I'm wrong Dawn) - lots of good places there as well...
