Great thread Cam! I'll start by saying I like the smell of the wood burning in the soft-pretzel street vendors' carts. I like the hustle and bustle of people all walking in different directions on sidewalks, passing total strangers en masse that they will probably never see again, and all hurrying to get where they are going. I like Madison Square Garden, that big circular monstrosity right in the middle of all that hustle and bustle. I like the fact that you can grab a yellow cab and get pretty much anywhere you want in Manhattan relatively quickly on a weekend, and on a weekday you can go down into the subway and hear the sparks flying from the metal wheels on the tracks. I like the museums, the food, the BBKing House of Blues when Etta James plays there, the fact that there are real honest-to-goodness red clay courts right along the Hudson River at 96th street (who knew?), and just plain the energy that wells up inside me every single goddamned time I come out of the Lincoln Tunnel and see the light of the big city!

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

I freaking love New York. I miss most things about it every day. I love the ocean, i love the hudson and east river. the fishing is amazing right in manhattan - ive caught striped bass in battery park and right at south street sea port. You may have seen me there Camron, going back about 4 or 5 years. I love NY restaurants, NY Pizza, NYorkers, except growchy ones on the subway... I love NY bars, the NY skyline, riding in a car on that highway on the east side ( pathetic i forget the name of it ) and seeing all the new buildings uptown, that is pretty. i love crossing the brooklyn bridge at night. Coney Island rules. i have wonderful memories of coney island. my favourite restaurant is in china town. it is vietnamese and not expensive. they opened up a second one down the street from the orignial one. anyone know that resto? the village rules! I love watching Mr Lee do his sword cucumber penis cutting ever summer. You'll know him? and those amazing tumblers in washington square. By the way, ill be home for Thanksgiving, so if YOU SENSE A DISTURBANCE IN THE FORCE, dont worry, i wont be home for long... he he.

Not true, you can have a good old time for just a few bucks. take a fishing pole to coney island, and 3 dollars for the finest hot dogs in the world.

I like the fact that you can still go into a small greasy little dinette right smack in the middle of mid-town and order coffee and a danish and this woman with a beehive hairdoo with a pencil stuck in it comes and refills your coffee, and you can sit there (as millions have before you) and read a paper and no one bothers you, yet everyone is busy around you.

I remember taking my dad to see Gabriela Sabatini play Monica Seles at the Virginia Slims Championships at Madison Square Garden, and even way back then, they charged $7.50 for a hot dog and a coke!

In Cam is right, sorry Euros, NY has to be the GREATEST CITY in the world. Paris might compare, IF IT WERE ON THE OCEAN.
