New York City

New York was a great place to be young. I don’t think I could live there again though. Too many people, too much noise…you have to have years to grow use to that. But oh what a magical city it still is to visit. There is no place else I would rather spend a day than in Manhattan, walking from midtown to the Metropolitan Museum, along Fifth Avenue and Central Park. It simply doesn’t get much better than that.  The people walking by you are living street theater, the air smells…well, let’s just leave it at that..the air smells, and then the museum is ahead of you and after a long walk you know that the building in front of you contains some of the greatest achievements of human artistry and talent and you are going to be able to just walk in and see it.  Damn, I love New York.

Did I mention that I spent yesterday there?
