I have an idea. I can make up a contact list for everyone, including cell #'s, when they're arriving/leaving, and where they're staying at.

Everyone who's coming can PM or e-mail me with their info ( popangel @ gmail dot com) and I'll be more than happy to compile it, then send to everyone right before that weekend.

Urggggh... I'm going to have to downgrade myself to a maybe at this point. A family member's birthday party is that weekend which I just found out this weekend. I won't know for sure that I am coming until March. I'll still purchase the ticket at the place but other than that it's wait and see.

Our plan right now is to arrive evening of the 15th & depart midday on the 21st. Where we're staying is still being debating, but we're leaning heavily to a place on E. 39th.

I'll email all the particulars once they're set.

Yep, if you want to get into the show Saturday

Shannon said the links were down but I'm sure they'll be back up soon.

Ok, as for the list, I'm collecting the info. This isn't a must, if you wanna be anonymous and such that's cool, too, but if you want to hook up with the rest of us, numbers may be required.

Is it worth the time and cost to do the usual touristy things (Empire State Bldg, Statue of Liberty, etc.) in New York, or should I not bother in only a weekend?

It's always worth the time and cost, in my opinion...why go all the way there and not see something NYC-ish. If you at all like museums, hit one of those.

if you've never been to a huge city like new york (like chicago, LA, etc.) then yea, i'd do the touristy things... esp. the empire state bulding... the view from the top really is amazing. i've lived in the area my entire life and i've never been to the statue of liberty, but i'm sure it's lovely or somethin'. seen it a million times, looks nice and all, just never been there.

really though you can get lost just walking the streets of manhattan... not lost lost... figuratively speaking (getting lost in the literall sense is actually quite hard thanks to the lovely perks of the grid system... streets go up in number as you head north, avenues go up in number as you head west... if you end up in the south bronx, you're on your own)

the date was taken off uf2.com temporarily as an attempt to drive up attendance at a show this friday at a brand new room, but the dates will return to uf2.com saturday afternoon (or sunday if the webmaster gets to drunk friday). in the meantime...

http://www.bbkingblues.com/schedule/...fo.cgi?id=2601

that's the link for the show it's self... 20 bucks a ticket is pricey for a tribute band, even i admit that... normaly it's a 10 dollar cover at your local pub, but being on st. patrick's day and all, and considering they've sold the place out 2 years running, bb's is trying to get as much as they can.... capitalism at it's finest.

everyone can e-mail either myself or my lovely assistant miss rail skank #69 the afformentioned information.

as for myself... on march 15th i have, um, a retreat i guess you could call it ... basicaly work is paying for us to go out east on the island, get drunk and build a more cohesive working environment or some shit like that... free room, free booze, i'm there. i need to work on the 16th for a few hours, done at 3... (it's about a 45 minute local train ride from where i work to penn, 25 if i can catch an express). st. patrick's day it's self, i'll be in manhattan by, oh, 10am-ish, and will be staying in the city overnight.

the pre st. patrick's day plans could change a little if the varsity basketball team gets into the state tournament (i coach the JV's and assist the varsity), but i will be there around 10ish on st. patrick's day regardless... they can handle practice without me for a day.

Yeah, I think I'm going to try to get up the ESB at some point, if I can avoid a massive line-up. I won't be upset if I leave NYC without having set foot on Liberty Island, though, since it's quite a bit out of the way.

I'm trying to work out whether or not I can afford to stay until Monday morning and use Sunday to do some sightseeing. My only options for flights on Sunday are either overnights where I spend Sunday night in Logan Airport or I can leave at 9 am the morning after St. Pat's - the chances of me being able to make it to the airport at 7:30 am that day are slim to none, to say the least.

I've also got word that I might have someone to help me out with paying for all this, so I've got to talk to her first before I finalize everything.

Last time we went to NYC we did a boat tour of the island. It was good because you cover alot of ground. The bus tour might be fun as well. We also plan on seeing stuff that we didn't see last time. ESB was foggy when we went up so this time, we are going up if its clear.

Statue of Liberty is cooler to do then the ESB. And it's not really out of the way, you take a ferry from Manhattan, but it does take an hour at least.

Also, the airports are a bit away from Manahttan, both are in Queens (Newark is in New Jersey). And there's no real mass transit to either. The subway to JFK sucks. You can take the Long Island RailRoad to JFK, but I don't know the schedules. LaGuardia is even more of a pain. Cabs are your best bet to any three airports. Without traffic, 20 - 30 minutes tops. With traffic...lol.

I agree with Beav...I've done the ESB and the Statue of Liberty, and would recommend the latter to anyone. But both are worth it. And as Headache said, just wandering around the city itself is worthwhile. You're gonna get a million suggestions, Dave, so, think about what's really important to you and focus on that. For me, if I had 1 day to spend in the city, I'd go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, stroll around there for a few hours, then go into Central Park, which is right behind the museum, and stroll around the park. But, that's me and if you ask 100 NY'ers what to do, you'll get 100 answers. Just do something, and, if you can stretch it out, you really should stay on Sunday.

I'll PM LMPA my exact info, but I think I get into town the Wed night before St. Patty's. Will just relax at home on Thursday and have dinner with my parents. The rest I'm playing by ear.
