Eh, I'm kind of with Robb on this though. I'm not religious so I'm not really that into visiting churches. I can appreciate the architecture so I'll check it out if it's convenient and I'm not in a hurry but I don't see myself seeking them out either.

I Love Donkeys!

Yeah, exactly. I'm not going out of my way for Jesus! lol It was there, we popped in for maybe five minutes, snapped a picture, made some Catholic school girl jokes and left. That's about my extent of interest in places of worship! :lol:

I always enjoy seeing and reading your non-coaster TRs as well. Not every trip has to be about rollercoasters and theme parks. Six musicals (especially seeing one twice on the same visit) would be too much for me as I'm not really a musical person, but I really did enjoy seeing Book of Mormon last year and wouldn't mind seeing a musical per visit to NYC. The Avenue Q one would probably interest me as I'm into South Park style of humor. I'm not a fan of puppets or Muppets in general, but I really got a kick out of Team America World Police and occasionally watched Crank Yankers when it was on Comedy Central. I'd also see Hamilton if tickets ever became approachable and affordable (I paid under $80 for Mormon last year which used to be over $200 even for the cheap seats, so it's possible). I think part of the reason that Hamilton continues to be insanely popular is because of what the cast said to Mike Pence as he was leaving the show he attended and that this pissed off Trump and he called on the cast to apologize - which just brought more attention to the musical and made more people want to see it. Instead of selling out for a few years, Hamilton will probably sell out for a decade plus now.

I also love all the different food options available in NYC. You could just do a food centric trip there and have a great time trying many different types of food or even just trying many different variations of a single type of food. I've been to New York twice now and both trips were within the last three years, and I look forward to going more often now that one of my sisters is moving there to go to grad school at Columbia and I'll have another excuse to go there.

Definitely next time , if you didn't get to this time, I'd recommend getting out to queens and the Bronx maybe a bit farther into Brooklyn too for some NYC exploration and great food!

You do realize that Elissa grew up in NYC and we visit all the time. It's not like we haven't been to all those places you are suggesting, we just choose not to go because we're not as big of fans of those areas. And we did actually go to the Bronx this visit...

Sorry, not meaning to come off as rude it's just always been sort of a pet peeve of mine when someone implies things we've missed out on or should be doing when we are perfectly educated on the things that we do and have made specific choices in the locations we visit based on our personal preference.

Hey Robb, how come you never visit Staten Island when you visit NYC? I'm personally offended. Yes, you and Elissa may perceive it as a sh!thole, based on the stars of numerous TV reality shows, but it's really not that bad. You can take the Staten Island Ferry for free, as if getting something for free equates to real value. You can than encounter horrible public transportation. If you come in the summer months you can enjoy a minor league baseball game with a great view of Manhattan. Wouldn't you love to sit and watch a sport you have no interest in and view the goodness of Manhattan from afar. We also have the only Tibetan museum in Western hemisphere, perfect for you to practice your meditation. We have more golf courses than the rest of the city, you love golf, right? Lastly you will soon be able to visit the largest park in the city that sits on the world's former largest landfill.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

Hey, be nice. Pretty soon you'll be able to pay to ride a completely pointless Ferris Wheel next door to the baseball stadium (that's currently delayed a year and 300 million dollars over budget) where you can also view the goodness of Manhattan from afar and we all know they're probably sending you to the media day. Get hyped!

Pizza.
Dim Sum.
Broadway.
Retro video games.
Animal zoo porn also featuring delinquent kids and the stupid parents that don't care/watch them until they get mauled/eaten.
Dali.
Van Gogh.
Poking fun at Trump and organized religion.

Looks like a A++ trip report to me!! :lol:

PS - Char-cup pepperoni is the best & should be the only pepperoni ever allowed on pizza. More pizzerias in Western NY are starting to use this type of pepperoni and that is a very good thing. I found it once at Wegmans, but only once. Booooo!
