I think he will probably just use whatever money he has saved to get him started, if I understand him correctly. Being loaded and also being able to take a year off to travel are certainly not mutually exclusive.

You can sit at the bar and have a good time as well, I was just there (again) a few days ago. The bar area at the Modern can get very crowded on weekends.

PS - I should hook up my system back again, by space is a premium in my tiny ass...
Not sure if this is consider "new" by your standards, but here are some ideas: Walk over the highline, and on chelsea piers if warm. Plenty of photography and art galleries to visit in the area too. Tim Burton exhibition at the MoMA is still going on. Lots of really good live jazz to listen to on the weekdays. Maybe a quick stop at one of the nice bars known for their cocktails. Check out the new Opening Ceremony shop at the Ace Hotel + other SF-type shops you haven't...
Taim is another spot in the WV for a good falafel. Had one of those Murray's melts yesterday and I have to say the sandwich + chips & drink deal for $6.50 is a very good deal.

Was hoping you would chime in. Any suggestions for a particular time to go in the next few months? I am not too worried about scorching heat, as I can handle that. Just worried that some parts of the summer might be too packed with tourists and all the prices will be...
Bump. In planning stages for a trip this summer to Istanbul and Athens. Is 2 weeks enough time for both cities? Ideally, I would prefer to spend the entire 2 weeks in Turkey, with a week or so in Istanbul and then spend the other week traveling around Turkey. However, got some buddies coming with me and they want to do Athens as well. I am thinking of doing mid-July to first week of August, and am expecting the weather to be very hot. Please advice.
bumping this for any new discoveries? El Cocotero on 18th between 7th and 8th is pretty good Venezuelan food for very reasonable prices. Maffei's on 6th ave and 22nd has decent pizza. Looking for a place that makes good basil pesto based pizza...any recs?
