Thanks everyone. I've never been there before so I'm pretty excited to go. I wasn't worried about feeling like a "target" but the causcious tips are appreciated. Headache thanks for the map.

Whatever else you do... you MUST see the naked cowboy.
This dude in a cowboy hat and tidy whities strums and sings for tourists in Times Square one of our " little pleasures " here in NYC High Art in the big city... gotta love it!

Oh god. When I was there for a week with my mom last fall she went nuts over him. I should post the pic of the two of them; it's hilarious.

I want to see that picture.


He's really funny, though, seriously. It takes balls (hehe) to stand out there and do that!

I can truly say that what this man says is entirely true.

To be honest, I've travelled all over the US and the world and I've never felt safer then in Manhattan. The only time I felt unsafe there was in Sept '04 when the place was crawling with ignorant Republicans. And even that was okay because they are all too dumb and fat to catch you.

Plus, I just became 3 Degrees Of Seperation with a lot of you. We've all met the same looney - the Naked Cowboy.

Sorry, should add that New York is fantastic and you don't actually need too many tips. You should save at the very least two days just for wandering without a plan.

I'll be going back for my 5th time in Feb/March (and I live on the other side of the world).

the naked cowboy is some wack-a-doo who stands in times square playing the guitar wearing just a cowboy hat and a pair of tightie whities.

it's highly disturbing.
