"Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. On the other hand, this not knowing has its charms." (Joe, You've Got Mail !)
Well, I went to New York City in Nov 1998 & I decided to do a page about it since! But never really got to it until recently, been extremely lazy, hee! hee! I think the trip was rather significant for me coz it's like a dream come true! New York always intrigued me.... The bad reputation, the rude, snotty New Yorkers, the Arts & Music scene, the romantic Empire State Building.... This is just a simple page of my trip! So just relax & follow my pace.... (If you can catch up, my tempo is allegro con brio!!!) If you want to hear me Babble....Babble....... or you are just a big busybody who want to read My NYC Travel Diary
Feel free to check out my 'badly scanned' NYC photos too!
Let's face it, touring in NYC is not going to be cheap...everything is expensive! We are not talking about anything fancy just the basics...the cab, food, accommodations & tipping is a MUST in all places even cabs except the vendors on the streets & fast food restaurants...Tipping is about 15-20%, depending on the service you get. Well, quoting my friend, going to New York will make you very broke!!!
