"New York Revisited" New York City by garridogal

New York City Travel Guide: 15,941 reviews and 32,057 photos

Long ago but not far away

I'm originally from New York. Living in Boston, it's easy to go down and visit. To me, going to NYC is always fun but it's more like falling back into the attitude you have there and just enjoying the unpredictability of the place! It's never dull....

But there's gotta be a better way!

Here I am on the Peter Pan bus from Boston to NYC over the summer of '06. That ride wasn't bad at all. However, the Greyhound ride home then and the last ones I just took were pretty bad. I guess when you pay $20 per trip you get what you pay for!

I've since started flying there. F that bus.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:New Yorkers are awesome
  • Cons:Sometimes too much of everything can be too much
  • In a nutshell:It always feel like going home....

    Excellent and very helpful info, will be going to NYC for the first time next week, staying right in mid-town Manhattan, I love how charismatic and talkative every New Yorker I've ever met has been !

    We go to Manhatten in 6 weeks. Thanks for the great pictures and comments. I also liked Boston very much when I was there a while ago.

    We enjoyed your NYC pages! I completely agree about Times Square. Been to the Frick and thought I was amazing. Safe travels from traveling Canadians!

    I love your picture of Madame Tussaud's from the hotel window. That's a great shot :)

    Great look at the Big Apple, one of my favorite cities, Joann. Greetings from Florida. How about them Red Sox?

    Thanks for the excellent restaurant/nightlife tips! I'll be sure to check out Flor de Mayo and Gotham Comedy Club :-) I like your writing style, it's fun & to the point. And I always appreciate suggestions from former New Yorkers! :-) Happy new year!
