A little quicky

Net cafes are really few and far between in NYC. Everywhere seems to have free wi-fi access, which is fabulous but pox all use when your laptop is on another continent. We were about to break out the Visa and buy some tech, when we found a rather overpriced place with one chair between us. Joy.

So given that last night was our first here, what did we do? We went to an Irish pub, and drank Guinness and whiskey. Hardcore, that's us! Today, I've mostly been cursing the fact that I brought my big huge warm coat, as the weather here is positively balmy. Wind chill doesn't seem to exist over here at all. That, or the sky scrapers do a fantastic job at negating it.

Natural history museum is 2 blocks from the hotel, so we partook of that today. I'm now afraid of taking off my shoes, in anticipation of how fricking much they're gonna swell.

Have located yarn stores and gaming stores. Reports to follow at some point :)

Sounds like you're in my neck of the woods. If you're not talking about the following- here's directions: There's a shady little net cafe on 37th between Madison and 5th, a Yarn store on 36th and Madison and a gaming store on 37th between 5th and 6th.

Enjoy your trip!

Oh wow- enjoy! The yarn store is tiny but they've been good to me. Might be a tad hard to find -its on the second floor.

If you haven't you should check out Purl in Soho- i've always wanted to go but its a bit of a trip and too much for a regular work day since i commute from NJ.
