My dh and I did a long day in NY last week. I finally got to visit the Chrysler Bldg., St. Patrick's Cathedral, Empire State Bldg. and many department store holiday windows. Let me tell you the city was mobbed with happy tourists. NYs were friendly, the police were helpful and polite, and the city was clean. We traveled around via the subway and I didn't find it the least bit intimidating. We ended the day at the Stage Deli. I ordered the Howard Stern sandwich which was brisket and corned beef on rye with a glass of Manhattan brew. There is so much to see, if we can hack the heat we'll do it again in August/September.
