As some of you know, I visited my daughter in NYC this past weekend. Here is me impression after 4 days: 1. I never once felt threatened or in danger in any part of the city that I traveled. 2. There is a NYC Subway app for the iPhone that is indispensible. 3. It's called the Big Apple, but everything there is small; bathrooms, restaurants, bars, appartments. 4. There were no occupiers anywhere to be seen on Wall street. 5. The subways for the most part were clean, except for one line that I traveled on. 6. Great Beer everywhere. 7. Great bakeries with wonderful breads and pastries everywhere. 8. I can get better pizza here in Florida. 9. The streets, though not clean, were better than I expected. 10. New Yorkers are not as rude as I've heard. I had a great time when I was there. I'll have to plan another trip soon.
