    No, I mean the whole thing. Blegh.

    Well, let me be more clear. There are individual things I like that happen to be downtown. Like Ippudo. But the surroundings, the people, all of that, I could happily do without.

    eh, I love it downtown. Whole different vibe and atmosphere, and all the good and bad that comes with that different atmosphere.

    Downtown as below 14th or below 59th?

    14. Naturally. Some leeway is given for Chelsea from 9th ave and beyond.

    Guess the midtown Ippudo's going to be one less reason to go downtown.

    Ippudo is great.


    but I can't get me enough $5.50 big bowl of spicy beef soup from Super Taste.

    Huzzah for that. Haven't had a better bowl of ramen in the city. Porkalicious like none other.

    Jin Ramen - 125th and Broadway.

    Just arrived home after an event at the Friars Club. Matthew Morrison sang a few show tunes with Smokey Robinson in the audience.

    It was a goddamn thrill to stand in the place where giants once tread.

    Is there a block anywhere in Manhattan without a double-parked, loudly idling, smog-belching 18-wheeler?

    On the weekend, there are none. You should visit sometimes :)

    Yes, but then on the weekend you have the ambulances idling for an eternity, what with their diesel super duty engines and sense of entitlement.

    At your house, when you're not there
    

    If you have to ask . . . .

    I like downtown NYC, but I'm always a little skeeved by the droplets of random moisture that land on me from time to time. You hope it's just A/C condensation . . . hope being the operative word
