You only live once, right?
A few things about NY:
1 – people are nice
2 – the subway is crazy but it’s fun and easy to figure out
3 – there is no place like it on the planet.
If you end up going, make sure to pick up a TimeOut New York magazine BEFORE YOU GO so you can check out what’s happening while you are there. The TimeOut guide is quite good as well.
Make sure you go to the Met, the MoMA, and make it over to Brooklyn, too. The Smith Street (Boerum Hill) area is really fun, as is Williamsburg.
I visited there, saw a few Broadway shows, walked around, and vowed to move there. 12 months later, I was living in Manhattan and stayed for five years.
If you are at all curious, you gotta go.
(And save up—it’s expensive!!)
