I'm posting some pics of my NY trip. I had just written out a caption for almost every pic, but the message board logged me out and didn't post my thread. So here goes a quick pic post without long captions. :(

We stayed with our friend Danny in Brooklyn. We did a favor for him at Coachella 07, so he was returning the favor. I have to say that staying with a New York native was the best decision we made. Danny told us where to eat, what places to go to, and of course he went to APW with us and brought his harem of girl friends along. They were all a fuckin blast and super nice. Jacob said at point "I've pretty much come to the conclusion that New Yorkers are way cooler than we are."

This is me and Danny in his apartment, located directly above a pizza place and right next to this AWESOME 24 hour deli/market.

I think Danny said Park Slope when he told the cabbie where to take us once. He said he got a really good deal on the apartment--there are million dollar brownstone houses just around the corner.

I don't mind tourists in general. I mind tourists that come in packs of 20 and block the entire sidewalk without moving. Or tourists that stop all of a sudden to look at Tad's Steaks when there's 50 people behind them. I've helped people find things when asked. Just don't be a pain in my ass. The New York sidewalks are as busy as the New York streets. Cars don't stop short for no reason(except cabs)...same rule for pedestrians.

Holy crap, I wasn't even implying this, but I will definitely think about it. My husband has relatives in Indianapolis, so maybe we could figure something out next year (with a good lineup). It seems like the park where Lolla is held is pretty spectacular (I saw the park years ago).

Nice pics. Good to see you had a fun trip to NYC with the help of locals. Did you eat good indian food on 6th? Also, did you stop in Physical Graffiti?? I used to live a few blocks away from there. My roommate new the manager at the time. Not sure she's still there, but we used to go there on occasion to bullshit and close up the store randomly to puff. She would let you buy & trade clothing too. Super cool shop. Ah ..... good times.

I just got back from NY today after APW, visting friends & family. I'm ready to go back. Wish I could've made it out to Prosepct Park for a night.

being a denver native, but been to both cities maybe 6 times chi, and 10 x's ny, and boston another like what you are saying, locals in the busy part of town have focus on what they need to do, people that are daft ie: tourists can be a hinderance, so you either loose it vis a vi falling down, or you just accept they are just small bumps in life ... japan is the same way to the extreme .... short story ... there is a restarant here in town, that you dont have to pay anything, you pay what you think what the meal was worth, you can work it off in the garden in the back, you can just say, hey next time i cant afford it .. anyway, they have been here for over two years and they say everything is going great, the had the same thing in ny city, it lasted less then a year, people , not bums, just dudes would come in in packs of 10 and eat and eat and just leave .. rip that place ... x****

We ate at Calcutta on 6th (Danny's fave Indian restaurant). We were surprised that the Indian food was much sweeter (NOT spicy) than the Indian food we're used to in Phoenix. We did not stop at Physical Graffiti, but we did hit Prospect Park and Central Park. I would really like to go back someday.

OH MY GOD, I couldn't believe how good ALL the food we ate was! Like I said earlier, there was a 24 hour teeny deli/market right outside Danny's door that made awesome fucking sandwiches 24 hours! We had this orgy of food at 3am after we got back from APW Friday: turkey sandwiches, bottled raspberry soda, the BEST CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES EVER. Now I'm thinking the food in AZ must just be bad--I never really cared about food that much (except maybe mexican and some indian food).

Chicago has the sprawl and thus there are plenty of areas where you just don't have the luxury of 24/7 and quality 24/7 no less.

New York City, thankfully imo, is absent of the "midwest" approach to life - excluding the tourists of course.

I can't really say what it is but it's different, algunz you come to the midwest and me if not plenty of others will show you the light.

I have never been to chicago but when we went to NYC the last time we hired a NY native to take us on a 5 hour walking tour, we gave him ideas of what we wanted to see and he took us to all the underground shopping centers, to neighborhoods we never would have seen and some awsome restaraunts. And apparently in the irish pubs in NYC they have a buy 2 get 1 free deal on all drinks. My sister and I were drinking Bombay and club sodas and the bartender was making them super strong, and every 3rd one was free. NYC will always hold a special place but I would love to make it to Chicago to do a comparison someday.

I love both and have experienced both as a "local" but I would say NYC all the way.

Trippin on mushrooms is better in NYC than it is in Chi-town.
The Architecture in NYC is beyond amazing and more innovative than Chi-town.
The Streets are livelier.
The people are freakier.
The Brooklyn Bridge, The Statue of Liberty, The districts, the parks, the museums.
The music, the clothes, the women…



Nice picks Amyzzz, I'm jealous.

Danny kept telling us how he tripped on acid and walked to Prospect Park. He tripped on shrooms and walked around the neighborhood, etc, etc. I can't really walk anywhere in my neighborhood except this field in my development and a couple playgrounds and the neighborhood pool. We don't even have any restaurants or stores within walking distance (and who wants to walk when it's 105 outside?). I'm jealous of the New Yorkers for the convenience they have. I suppose I could move to downtown Phoenix...if only they had anything open there after 2pm and if they had any decent public schools.

Right, and the mass transit is astounding. I wish we had something similar. I'm wondering about Phoenix's light rail will pan out. Too bad we have so much urban sprawl.

locachica73
08-13-2008, 01:21 PM
Yes it was amazing, although I got stuck on the subway down by wall street at 5 pm. That was a bit frightening. On the subway, about 5 people on our car then bam, the doors open and its packed like sardines. And no matter where I looked I was looking at some dudes package since they were all standing in front of me.

I have heard the Phoenix light rail isn't going to go that fast. I have a feeling it won't do that well. But then again, when gas was up to $4.00 + a gallon the commute seemed to be alot nicer. Some people actually broke down and took the bus.
