New York City

We had a great time in NYC- a place like no other. Seriously, I don't see how people can live there but it's fun to visit. After all my years of reading about places in NY ( it's the setting of so many books I read) it was a thrill to finally see it. Greenwich village, Soho, Times Square, Central Park...pretty much like I imagined. Except a lot more dirty- Ew! Trash in the street, toilets overflowing, grime on the buildings, foul smells- really, a polluted city. My face, at the end of the day was covered with a film of yuckiness.
My favorite things: Seeing the musical 'Rent', the Mets game- crazy NY fans all foul-mouthed and rude, 'appearing' on the Today show, our dragqueen bus tour guide, eating NY pizza in the village, watching Ellis be a weatherman at the NBC studios, our death-defying taxi ride from the airport.
The picture is of the 3 of us(me, on the right) on the tour bus. Could not have been more touristy but it was perfect. Glad I had my hat- burning hot.
