They let m in and out of New York

just , my daughter was looking doubtful going in and Heathrow weren't too happy about letting me back in.

But we made it. I haven't slept since Friday, cat napping where I can but we did all the touristy things and no shopping :-)

Most memorable was Ground Zero and the Helicopter trip across New York, but boy I have never experienced cold like it, -8 plus gale force winds, we couldn't even stand up at one point.

 

Glad I went ? yes.  Would I go again? no.  It was a great weekend but the place is dated and dirty.

Food exceptional, beer rank, but all in all awesome

ditto oldish....

got some South African friends, and there seem to be a lot more places you wouldn't go to, rather than those you could....and that's them, with 'local' knowledge!!......:shock:.....oh, and NEVER put anything remotely valuable in non hand luggage bags.

Welcome back, I didn't need to go as I've met too many americans and that was more than enough for me, so going to where they exist is a big no no.

Kam do you mean like the film with Kurt Russell in it?

I love NYC

and take my 2nd year students there on a trip that includes Washington DC. NYC is good in winter, sowy central park, ice skating in SoHo (like Somerset hse in London). Last time I saw ground Zero it was just a construction site.

Beer in US ain't good, except Sam Adams - try it on draft, You can get the bottles in tesco, but they ain't quite as good. Perhaps its jsut the lack of (good) buffalo wings in the UK?

Nevertheless, $10 a pop for beer ain't funny.

My daughter had Sam Adams

cack:lol: managed to have a couple of bottled beers but they were extremely pricey,

In fact everything was expensive to be honest, the helicopter ride cost 400 dollars for 2 of us and we were only up 20 mins:shock:

Sam Adams

well, I like it; and I'm not a fan of the usual US "pale" stuff (Bud, Coors, Miller, etc)
