'New York, New York, it's a wonderful town'

How long ago did we plan this? A year, or almost. Ample time to get the pounds off, I'd have thought. So did I manage it? Did I, bollocks! Looks like poor JM is gonna be squeezed out of the picture (but that's alright 'cause he's gonna be bald and not!likeSpike in the slightest, so...why should I bother?)...

Still, I'm looking forward tremendously to my upcoming visit to New York. I can't believe it's a mere 6 weeks away (and only 3 weeks to the GotR gig in Amsterdam); I'm so excited about it! Last time I was there, I didn't get off Manhattan except for one occasion when I went to the ballet in Brooklyn, so I'm hoping to get a chance to this time...but I've only got 4 1/2 days before I have to go back again. Anyone got any ideas as to what I really have to make it my business to see/experience while I'm in the city? And bear in mind I've already done all the touristy stuff, soaking up the culture and looking around going ahhhhh!...all except the Statue of Liberty which I'm going to have to make sure to see this time round (I was on my way to Battery Park 3 years ago when I got waylaid and given a private tour of the NYSE and a lovely luncheon that lasted virtually all afternoon in the NYSE Club, and so the boat left without me). Any and all suggestions gratefully received!

calove and I are going to go up in a helicopter, I think (and maybe julchek will join us, even), but other than that we haven't made any definite plans for further entertainment yet. Which is fine by me, as I'm a very go-with-the-flow/spur-of-the-moment kind of person anyway, but I wonder: Cass, are there any things you particularly want to see/do on our trip? I'm game for anything, so don't feel you have to hold back!

Think it's about time I started to let people know I'm coming...now where's my little black book?

I haven't been there before and I do have an interest in public housing and social history and stuff...

I thought it sounded like something that might appeal to you. It's very well done, too, and they are constantly adding new tours and activities, so there's always something to do.

You'll only be a couple of hours away? Where? Maybe we can, you know...

Well, I'm moving to Philadelphia in less than three weeks, so that's where I'll be. The only thing is, I have no idea how long it will take me to find an apartment, get settled, what my various work schedules will be like, etc., so planning is a little difficult at the moment. But definitely, if it's at all possible, I'd love to get together.

I'll keep you posted on what's what, so we can work something out.

My, that certainly sounds as if you've got your work cut out for you in the next couple of weeks! Good luck with it all -- and yes, keep us posted!
