    another nyc travel thread

    Discussion started by Vanity - Mar 16, 2004

    alright.. im finnin to hit the apple in about a week or so.

    browsed the threads, nothing juicy.

    so, what's some cheap stuff to do while there?

    so far, my plans are:
    -a mission or two is highly likely, though not the primary purpose.
    -walking around, taking a buncha pictures.
    -meeting up w/ my lil bro from portland
    -meeting up w/ an old highschool friend in brooklyn
    -maybe take a glance at a school or two to see if that's a viable option.
    -drinking malt liqour and walking around, possibly bleeding by the end of the night (ussually the face)
    -checking out some of the tunnels (any help w/ this is appreciated)
    -prolly check out the bench

    any other suggestions are appreciated... also, a cheap hotel, i guess... and an alright spot to help my bro along on his 21st bday... im getting tired... night kids

    the tunnels are extremely sketchy because of the terrorist shit. i advise against it.

    cherry tavern and blue&gold are my lower east side watering holes.

    take the L train to bklyn, get off at the first stop in bk for the hipster capital of america.

    drinking on the strret isn't legal, so a discreet can of beer is better than a 40 of OE for drunken wandering.

    FIT is on 27th between 7th & 8th. you said you wanted to check schools, well this school is a non-stop fashion show. between 1-3 PM is best time for seriously hot college girl ass. it's better when it's warmer out, but still worth a try.

    have fun.

    The only cheap thing to do is buy bootleg music on Canal St.

    the Met is an awesome museum, if you care..

    i wouldn't do tunnels without someone very experienced, the terror shit (especially! cuz of the madrid bombimgs) has made it a very big deal to get caught down there

    catch the freedom tunnels before thast area gets completely gentrified

    there's that trendy bar.. is it called fish? i don't remember.


    check websites like www.hotels.com first.
