Mrs. ISL will be accompanying me to New York City (actually Mid-town Manhattan) March 19th-23rd on a training trip. I love taking her with me on these trips, we do it as often as we can. This one we could not pass up and affording airfare is a challenge but we're making it happen.

Since I'll be in training 8:30 to 4:30 we won't have any time during the day to sightsee and can't afford to arrive a day early. But Mrs. ISL plans to hit a few museums during the day as she gets in free because she works at a museum. We'll see what we can hit at night after class.

Me? I just want to eat some great Noo Yawk food! NYC to me is one place I've always wanted to see but doubt I would have ever gone had this training class not been held there.

The hotel we have booked is 1/4 mile from my training site (A customer datacenter full of equipment) so we will walk everywhere possible. I got the last room in that hotel.

If any FDP'ers will be in NYC around that time hit me up and we can plan something- our schedule is completely open. We plan to just take it day by day and fit in what we can.

This is a once in a lifetime deal for both if us, we're pretty excited. I'm just happy to not be traveling alone.

I don't like cities as a rule, but I love to walk around in NYC. I'm not expert enough to have specific opinions, though.

Have fun!

For a first time visitor NYC is overwhelming. I love it but haven't been back for years. It's truly a city that never sleeps. Have fun!

Dining suggestion were provided in your earlier topic.

But one totally casual long time NYC institution is Grey's Papaya on 72nd and Broadway.

"Better than filet mignon" hot dogs and the wonderful papaya drink.

In the same category is Ray's Pizza - foremost purveyor of NY- style pizza - cheese only no other toppings. Ray's and spin-offs Famous Ray's and Original Ray's are all over town. My favorite is on 11th or so and 6th Avenue on the west side of 6th Avenue. (6th Avenue is also more formally known as Avenue of the Americas.)

You haven't been to NYC if you haven't dined at Grey's and Ray's!

If you're looking for a steak house, money is no object, and you want a NY steak the size of your shoe, check my favorite -- the Old Homestead down in the old meat packing district (now extremely trendy!).

Another NYC steakhouse - this one in mid-town - it's an old record biz hangout -- but I like The Old Homestead better.

Don't forget Katz's Deli on Houston St., and cross the Brooklyn Bridge into Williamsburg and get a steak at Peter Luger's. Unfortunately, Little Italy has almost been completely swallowed up by Chinatown. For a much larger Little Italy you have to head up to the Bronx and go to Arthur Avenue.

I'm working days that week but I'd be glad to drive nto the city for a beer with you one evening. Maybe we could talk to Long Island crew in to a visit too.

" and get a steak at Peter Luger's."

Little known fact, because everyone who goes there gets the steak. Peter Luger's also has one of the best hamburgers I have ever had. And quite inexpensive also, compared to the steak.

Definitely eat at Scapretta, order the Spaghetti with Tomato and Basil.

It seems ridiculous that something so basic could be so delicious, but you will not eat a better pasta dish in all of NYC.

I love NY! Have fun! You can't hardly help it there.

And btw, 2003 called. They own the phrase "ci-tay" and have kindly asked that, going forward, you refrain from using it.

Thank you.

Our favorite cheap Little Italy Italian restaurant, Luna on Mulberry Street, closed!

:(

But we also have enjoyed La Mela.

Tell that to Big & Rich!! I "borrowed" that from their "Save a horse, ride a cowboy" song that is stuck in my head as a result of my wife's CMT addiction.
