The Circle Line is so fun and you get a lot of great stories about New York.

Tea and Sympathy in the Village is fantastic, as is Milk & Cookies and Magnolia for cupcakes.

Verte, you can tell me what you thought and then make recommendations to me.

Hey Dave....Verte lives in the U.S. - she will not have a need to exchange money.

I go twice yearly, at Christmas to see the stores dressed for the Holidays and to attend the theatre and again in May because springtime in New York is the best season to see it. This year I will make the trip again in September for the last games at Yankee Stadium.

I just wanted to say that some of my best memories of New York are the ones that just happened. My advice to you is to not rush and try to see everything. New York is best when you allow the city to amaze you. Look around, experience the small things that are only found in New York.

I think my hotel will be near Times Square, but I'm not sure.

Matsui, I hope you show up for more than some September games.

Yeah, thought I was talking to BonoManiac for a sec there, and I started ranting

I gotta go back sometime in summer. It was fuckin' cold when we were there.

Another tip, verte: If someone tries to sell you a CD in Times Square, don't buy it unless you plan on having 20 more guys come up to you trying to sell you theirs, too. You can blow through your last 50 bucks in a real hurry

Why would you try to? Don't you have a debit card that works on the Cirrus system? Or the Plus system? I never even take US cash with me, there is no need anymore.

I've got a credit card through my bank with which I can withdraw money from any ATM anywhere in the world and I don't pay a cent. That comes in very handy.

Nope. I tried that, and my bank apparently doesn't allow international transactions with the type of account I have. If I want that ability, I have to pay extra.

Usually it's something like $5/transaction in those situations. That is a wash if you take out a bunch of $ at once.

I have it for free in the US, but I get levied the $5 in Europe which is a bit annoying.
