he can regale you with takes of america.
in that awful Tall Tales episode of The Simpsons.
Empire state building at night
don't go to the statue of liberty, it's a bit boring
but the trip includes ellis island, which i found really interesting, and you get some lovely views on the boat trips.
& Ive never felt so sick. Urgh. Didn't even take any pictures.
Ground Zero is eerie, but it's nice to pay your respects. Try & avoid the people trying to sell you photos of the dead.
if it wasn't for my tutor warning me about them, I would have screamed in his face.
Urban Outfitters out there is lush & mega cheap. H&M isn't that great though.
it's incredible. & the sex and the city tour!
goes right past Liberty and is free!
i love those people. if you're a fan of tacky merchandise, you won't find any tackier than the stuff around there. best thing i got was a really badly made postcard with the twin towers photoshopped onto a stars'n'stripes. comedy!
& when i was out there, loads of spongebob squarepants stuff.
you won't have time to do it all.. We can chat about this another time.
Yay for you :D
say these words later this year
Er "I'm going to New york" that is
It's all good. But try to get to venues like Piano's or the Bowery Ballroom or the Mercury Lounge.
the bowery ballroom so much :o)
and sit in the square near the university pretending it's the 1960s. It's ace.
we're staying here! so. hilarious.
you're going in style!
i hope to go again but it's too early to plan. walk around the city during the village halloween parade - it's amazing that everyone in the street dresses up - some amazing costumes.
Lower east side for all your gigs need.
Sound Fix records is my fav. shop.
on the way home from London...
You don't live in London, do you?
Also: points for anyone who can mention which song i'm quoting...
I wish I was going. In the summer... maybe. I have three months off.
just up from B&H Photography on 9th. Just walk about, see where your nose takes you, sit in coffee shops for a break and watch NY go by the window. Great city. If anyone's going to be there in the near future you'll see some of my photos in an exhibition in Grand Central Station :)
i'm going in April, i'll make sure to have a look
