If my coverage of the great city of NY seems a bit sparse it's because I've been there 4 or 5 times before. I didn't go to Times Square or Radio City Music Hall or the Statue of Liberty (I did go to the Met, but the guards made sure I didn't make it past the entrance). As with most of the other cities I've gone to on this trip, I'm there to 'feel' the city and get a good vibe for what it's like to be an inhabitant rather than a spectator. I think the mistake a lot of people make while visiting foreign cities is to make the mistake of trying to cover as much ground as possible to not miss anything. But sometimes the best way to see the city is to let it pass you by while, say, sitting on the steps of a building eating halal lamb from a pie tin on 53rd and 6th.
