As I’m off to New York City from May 6 to June 5 where I’m staying right in the thick of it in lower Manhatten, I’ll be posting about my experiences right here – with pictures from my trusty Nokia N95.
I’ll be getting a new sim card while I’m there for anyone who needs to contact me directly, and will have access to Skype occasionally as well.
I was hoping to make it to the Tribeca Film Festival (started by Robert DeNiro) but wouldn’t you know it – the festival finishes just as we arrive. Doh.
(With a bit of luck I’ll get some pics as good as this)
I’m also planning on heading to Washington D.C. for a night or two to check out the seat of power in the western world, built on the backs of thousands of slaves. The sheer scale of it looks pretty impressive.
Other than that the thing I think I’m most looking forward to is checking out the food. Truely the path to a man’s heart is (a motorway) through his stomach.
If anyone has any tips on how to eat well and cheaply, please feel free to let me know in the comments. I’d also appreciate a heads up on good places to shop for clothes, sunglasses, and music. Flea markets anyyone?
Other than the tickets I’ve booked for the world famous Blue Note Jazz Club, I imagine I may find my way to the odd discotheque or two as well : )
Here’s hoping the reputation American airports have is undeserved. I like all my cavities just how they are.
