enjoy your stay
Bobby

Drove down to Long Island, NY, a couple of years ago to pick up a hardtop for my Jeep. Had to go through the middle of NYC. That's a trip I would rather not make again. Good luck!

I've never been to NY city, drove through Buffalo many years ago on the express way. I've had the misfortune of having to drive through Chicago many times. There is now way to go east from here without having to through the Chicago/Gary IN area. I consider this area the armpit of the country. Sorry flatlanders but it's a horrid place. How does NY city compare to Chi town?

Just play the whole crocidile dundee angle and you'll be ok. Watch out for the gal with the deep voice. Remember, NYC must be the friendliest city in the world, 7 million people all wanting to live together.

I went one year-kind of. I went to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. That was as close as I wanted to get. Have fun!

Hey Bob as you know I'm more of a Central IL farmer wanna-be type but I did live in Chicago for a year many years ago. I was very happy to return home but I do like to visit Chicago once in awhile. It is a cool city if you do some exploring and figure out ways to get around. You just have to be careful and not let this happen to you...

NYC

Sorry to disagree with you folks, but I grew up in Connecticut about 50 miles outside NYC. Can't count how many times I've been there. Have many fond memories. It's not as bad as you think. People are very friendly, you just have to get their attention as everyone is rushing and in the middle of something. But have your guard up, don't carry your wallet in your back pocket, I'm not kidding. It's the only place I ever been to where the buildings are so high and there are so many that you really feel like you're inside when you're outside. It's just like one big circus, enjoy the view.
