I LOVE NEW YORK (sounds like an ad campaign!)
I haven't been up there in a year and I've got family there...no excuse! This is my favorite time of the year too.
The walk you described, that's my kind of walk!
Anyway, to get back on topic (somewhat) I didn't realize HAL was launching a new ship from NYC. Wow, that's great, but a little scary. Scary because the last time I was at the piers they still seriously needed some updating and renovation.
What's your view on this; I'd appreciate the opinion of a Noo Yookaw (how did you spell that again?)
Alas, it is 4:09 and I don't think I'll make it to the Dawn. I'll have to wait for a better planned trip
