    you should totally buy a baby stroller and push it around, even if you don't have a baby.

    Am very much dreading the SuperBowl next week.

    Just received the following from my office:

    SuperBowl Boulevard? What kind of bullshit is this? So now in addition to the normal nonsense I have to deal with in Midtown, I have to deal with mass street closings for a full week, along with even larger masses of clueless tourists?

    And since when was the SuperBowl a week long? JFC.

    They've been milking the Super Bowl during the preceding week for some time now, but taking over a street in a different state is a new one AFAIK. Ridiculous.

    LOL. It's reassuring to know those high-salary MTA employees are fully competent.

    Oct is good weather, tourists you just have to avoid, don't walk on Fifth between say 50th until central park, or any where near time square, then you should be fine

    middle October is the best time. No summer heat, no winter chill, and tourist level is manageable. July is too hot, January is too cold, and December is a tourist nightmare.

    Hmm. Giving an October visit serious thought depending on how selling my rental house goes.

    I think we should turn this event into a SF meat up.

    October is the best month of the year in New York. Weather is usually great and its between the two peak tourist seasons.
