    Not a Cav fan. Sweet personality, but those are ugly dogs.

    I'm not going to lie, I think I only know what like 2 or 3 dog breeds look like. Naming them goes right over my head.

    I don't keep pets around but this is how I remember them.
    Golden retriever - Air Bud, and every white family on television seems to have had one.
    Bull Dog - Attacked Michael Jordan in Space Jam
    Pug - The miniature bull dog from Men in Black
    Doberman - Mr.Burns has them, and they're plastered all over Givenchy t-shirts and other stuff they sell.
    Corgi - Queen of England's pets
    Husky - Oh look, wolves. I think they were in that one movie about dog sled racing
    Pomeranian - Really fluffy, puffy and small looking
    Great Dane - So tall

    I think the dogs on the fashion tee shirts are Rottweilers?

    I wouldn't want one because I don't want to be the guy walking a Cav in Brooklyn.

    the other day, this guy in the elevator was talking to another guy about his Labradoodle. Yes, the guy looked like a pussy.


    you probably know the following breeds and what they look like: golden retriever, labrador, dalmatian, dachshund, pit bull, pug, boston terrier (Daisy), poodle, Chihuahua, schnauzer, bull dog, and german shepherd. In other words, 95% of dogs in the USA.

    Dude. Labradoodles are awesome. You get two of the cutest, friendliest dogs put together, plus the smarts and... uh.... hypoallergenicness? of the poodle. What more could you want?!

    I like the sidewalk to clear in front of me.




    Which happens. :confused:

    Do tell.

    I have a great deal of time for working breeds. Yappers -- which are, collectively, any breed that can be worn as a fashion accessory -- not so much.

    This is a good place to mention one of my, uh, pet peeves about NY: dog strollers. To be sure, this goes on in other cities but it seems much more noticeable in NY. Maybe it's because the sidewalks are more crowded. But when I see someone "walking" their dog in a stroller, well, it seems to me that they are unclear on the concept. Kid's strollers, which are now often the size and weight of light infantry vehicles, are bad enough. But people using up valuable sidewalk/aisle space to push their dogs around . . .

    No I sprinted off the train at Canal when the conductor announced that Jay/MTech was the next stop. Then I found the 4 (running on the 6 track between Canal and City Hall) and it took me to Fulton. This whole trip was a transit fustercluck; probably karma for flying into EWR. But it was for a job interview and I got the offer. So a new reason for NYC not sucking will be the return of Nick Carraway.

    BTW wouldn't it have made sense during the construction of the Fulton mega-station to put the westside trains (123) on the west side of the station and the eastside trains (456) on the east? Oh well at least I know when the apocalypse comes and it's raining blood that I can walk underground from Wall/William to St. Paul's Chapel for my salvation.

    Used that station last night and ended up walking what seemed like forever and up and down stairs to get to the 2/3 from Broadway and Fulton. Next time just going to walk at street level to get to them.

    What is everyone's thoughts on stuff you should see the second time you're visiting the city? It's been a few years since I last went and my taste in clothing has definitely changed, so there will be some different stores to visit there. But I'm mainly asking, as I've seen most of the tourist-y stuff like boat trip to Ellis Island, Rockefeller, Ground Zero and such, but what are some must-see stuff most people usually miss their first time? For now I'm planning a trip to the Met, the Public Library and Brooklyn Flea Market, but would appreciate other suggestions. Perhaps it's worth visiting MoMA again, or should I go somewhere else when I've been there once already? Hope it's okay I ask in this thread - I searched and read other threads but they seemed more targeted towards people visiting their first time.

    Personally I usually take relatives visiting different places to eat. There is a vast array of restaurants in NYC representing cuisines from around the globe.

    I don't know what a German shepherd is. I do know a greyhound because they are the sleekest, coolest looking dogs. They are the sleek black Oxford of dogs.

    Markets are fun when they are outdoors. Chelsea market, eataly and such. I find that people from out of the city enjoy parks as well, Washington square, central by Bethesda fountain and even just walking around the village.

    Definitely plan on eating a lot of nice places as well, but I've found a fair of amount of recommendations in other threads. I'm more looking for the stuff to do in-between the eating. Of course if anyone has that one recommendation for a restaurant that everyone needs to try I'm open to it [​IMG]


    Chelsea Market seems nice, isn't it indoors, though? And Eataly is a place I'd suppose you go to see the market and eat lunch? Definitely enjoyed walking around in Central Park last time.
