As usual Rich C is right about everything, and you know I live in the Big Apple and I would be happy to show ya around, introduce you to Emmy and maybe drag you onto a drive if you pick a weekend that has one.
This city has too much to list, let me know what kind of things you are interested in and I will do my best to find the BEST! (it's a point of pride here)
I'd love to catch that movie with you (and a bunch of geeks) as long as no one tells me ANYTHING about it before I see it!
