Out of the Blue

Happy birthday to our oldest niece, who, in an effort to make us wonder where the time goes, turns seven years old today!

A forum post yesterday raised the question about recommendations for a Manhattan visit that are not typical tourist destinations. Since nothing good in NYC remains obscure for too long, the list I've compiled is probably more touristy than the poster had wished, but I figured if I post it here on a slow Sunday it can serve as a guide for others, and perhaps informed New Yorkers can add suggestions:

The number-one rule for an authentic NYC dining experience is to avoid Times Square. No natives eat there, and there's probably a Planet Hollywood and a Hard Rock Cafe near where you came from anyway.

* For the truly daring, follow the advice of an old boss of mine and seek out the vendor with the dirtiest fingernails.

heres a comment from that page:

That boy's parents need to beat him untill he bruises! The boy clearly needs to go to church MORE SO HE UNDERSTANDS HE WAS WRONG!
If that boy was my son I wouldhave whiped his ass so hard he couldnt sit for a year! He needs to learn GODS Commandments!! ESPECIALY THOU SHALT HONOR THY FATHER AND MOTHER!!!!
dispicible libral parents probably praised they're kid and gave him new toys for finding a new way to avoid church. Their just jelous they never thoght of that when growing up as kids themselfs.
Beat this boy and teach him a leson!!!!!!!1

those christians and their loving forgiveness
