    At your house, when you're not there
    I have a meeting all the way up near 125th & Lenox on Thursday. Hopefully it will be mostly clear of all the official hoopla, though I imagine there will be plenty of unofficial hoopla to snarl everything up there. I especially can't wait to fight my way through the airports. Anyone know where I can get a nice, heavy axe handle uptown?

    whats with the position as a traffic guard or crossing guard or whatever? i'm assuming there's a hierarchy here because some of the guards really take charge in the street, scream and yell at cars, while others just stand on the side and don't do a damn thing.

    You are going to fairway at the wrong time. It is best after dinner time.

    i was in new york last week and i enjoyed seeing a man enter the f train at 2:00 pm screaming about how high he was and proceed to try to hump a handpole while yelling 'oh baby' until a disheveled homeless woman with a septic looking cast started yelling at him in gibberish

    also $18 hotel oatmeal and $20 card minimums at bars

    It does seem to be getting a little crazier out there. There is now a begger on every corner in Midtown, for instance.

    i was looking at some hotels this weekend, and if i'm honest it's really hard for me to recommend any over a place from AirBnb.

    not a good bar
