i am having this ridiculous fascination with going to New York for awhile. i am finding several things of interest only to have them all be in NY. i find it strange because last i was there i was totally unimpressed, big cities tend not to impress me much. of course i was completely jet lagged and sick and we didn't do anything while i was there. it'd be a way of getting out of chicago for a while without having to cross the pond or learn another language.
