  2. I agree with the list wholeheartedly, but I do disagree slightly with your assessment of Times Square. I work here every day, and with the right expectations, i.e. that it’s going to be gaudy, quirky, loud, crowded, a little dirty, and very commercial, it can be an absolute blast…full of a certain exciting energy like nowhere else. I watch the tourists, cameras out, looking around in wonder, especially at night, and it’s an experience that’s something they remember when they leave. It’s not refined, but it’s VERY New York! šŸ™‚

    1. Yeah, perhaps I was a little harsh. I think under the right circumstances it’s interesting for a first-timer.

  3. My theory as to why crime isn’t like it used to be in New York: The Three Strikes Law that made street crime hard to pull off due to automatic sentencing.

    Much respect from Toronto.

  4. That thumbnail is solid gold šŸ˜‚ that’s basically what NYC, namely Times Square has been reduced to now, painted topless chicks straight from Columbia & panhandlers masquerading as costumed characters. Commercialism in general knows how to sell people a dream, NYC is not a utopia of bright lights and good vibes as travel ads would like to proclaim and it’s not a corrupt and over run city like you’d see in movies and video games…it’s relatively…normal, as expectations go. Well us locals are used to it.

  5. Can you do a specific video on which apps are useful to download when visiting New York? Im visiting there during the holidays and your videos are really helpful xx

  6. Part of it is attitude. We started going to NYC back in the eighties. Always had a blast and never got lost. Oh yeah, never had a hot dog…
