    The American terminal at LaGuardia makes me seriously want to wear gloves and a respirator. It's awful (like just about everything relating to American).

    They *should* tear it down. It's a terrible arena.

    Obviously, will never happen, and the Farley Post Office thing seems like just a pipe dream.

    The only part that remains livable is UWS. Extended evening hours at Met is where I hide.

    have you been in since the renovation? It's got some pretty cool stuff going on.


    Barclay's center is terrible.

    Last time I was there was in, probably, 2009?

    Barclay's center is indeed pretty bad. The acoustics in there are *awful*. Haven't been to a game there though. Still, I'd rather go there than the Garden.

    ok, so def. pre-renovation. I can assure you that it's MUCH nicer now, this is what a billion gets you. The general area before you enter your seat aisles is similar to the Barclays' with fancy restaurant options and the like.

    I don't drink coffee.

    I did have dinner at The Breslin, which was pretty good.
