New York To-Do

  • an everything bagel
  • deli sandwich (corned beef or pastrami)
  • some spicy Bobby Flay bullshit


  • Brooklyn Bridge
  • Central Park (specifically Strawberry Fields, so I can take a dump on it)
*Speaking of which, I wonder when people began to stress the "State" instead of the "Empire". When you say New York's nickname, you stress the "Empire". "EMPIRE State". When you talk about the building, you stress "State". "Empire STATE Building".


October 5
  • ASSSSCAT 3000 improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre
  • Fleet Foxes at Webster Hall
October 6
  • taping of Late Night with Conan O'Brien

That's one sweet trip, no? Any suggestions, particularly on where NOT to go, should be written in the comments.

DON'T go to the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square. Or anywhere, for that matter.

DON'T go to Central Park at night.

DON'T go to Newark for any reason.

DON'T go to Penn Station at night or the bus station ever. It's depressing. I'm pretty sure Serpentine and I saw at least 3 hobos that are dead by now in there. Oh, Coughy, you'll always haunt my dreams.

Eat your pastrami at Katz's deli, famous for when harry met sally, but none the less delicious/enormous pastrami sandwiches. 205 E. Houston st. Which would be the north end of SOHO ("south of houston", get it?) Plenty of crazy shit to see down town.
Definitely skip Ellis Island, Nate and I skipped it and have never once regretted it.
