"its the city that never sleeps we have everything and anything you could want and not want B."

mfgrocker :
"its new york it has everything. Millions of shopping stores (top of the line stores), yes it has beaches. Lots of sight seeing spots. We have one of the largest number of tourists in the world. Welcome to the big apple!!!!!!!!"
gormenghast10014 :
"Yes, yes and yes. Great shopping, including Macy's, the largest department store in the world - not like the little mall "outpost stores" - Macy's is in a huge building - nine floors of shopping - don't forget Lord & Taylor, Bloomingdale's, Saks and more. Tremendous savings on upscale clothing at Century 21, Loehmann's, Daffy's, Barneys, Filene's Basement, etc. There are Abercrombie, American Eagle, Old Navy, H&M, etc, etc. You'll also be near the Garment District - blocks and blocks of stores that supply clothing to stores in the rest of the country. There are three beaches in Brooklyn - Manhattan Beach, Brighton Beach and the world famous Coney Island. There are a ton of museums, theatres, clubs, concerts and restaurants. There are parades and street fairs, festivals The dog has to be kept on a leash on City streets, but, there are parks where dogs are allowed to run free. You'll all love it here - welcome!"

i really want to go to new york city and my dad says that he doesn't think it's that fascinating and that i need to persaude him to go by telling him what kinda things that he'll be interested in are in new york. so if you live in new york city tell me. my dad is interested in things like World War II and food and stuff. so you can basically tell me some of the historical sites and stuff.Help me Please! Oh and i always wanted to know-is the upper east side of manhattan like rich?

soothsayer :
"oh yeah, if he's into food, but doesn't find nyc fascinating, he must have a very different reason why he doesn't want YOU to go. he must be afraid of crime and you getting raped or something. but rapes and murders in nyc has nosedived in the past decade. you still have to contend with pickpockets and drunken assaults."
Kyle m :
"Best thing that came out of NY was the I-78"
Kendra w :
"There is alot of Food and Museums in NYC, especially central park has alot of historic stuff in there"
Butterfly Lover :
"The Intrepid Air and Sea Museum will be back in Sept or Oct 08. That is an extremely moving, interesting tour of a WWII aircraft carrier. There are too many things for me to list. More than anything NYC is a vibe, an energy you won't feel anywhere else. Check out these links; The upper east side is still a very wealthy area. But so are a lot of others. Have a great time!"
Native New Yorker :
"Yes, the Upper East Side of Manhattan is for the rich. You literally have to have money and good job to live in that section of the Manhattan. May I recommend the following historical place to visit while in New York. Since you dad is a WWII history buff, may I recommend you take him to the Intrepid Sea and Space Museum. He not only will see the famous ship, the USS Intrepid, but he can see a lot of military history on borad the ship. You may want to take him in November of this year, that when the museum will be reopened after renovations. Other history place that will convince him will be the following: -Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island -Governor's Island (former military installation) -Brooklyn Bridge (there are several plaques along the main walkway that depict the history of the bridge) -Federal Hall National Memorial (where George Washington was inaugurated in 1789) -Fraunces Tavern (where George Washington made his farewell address to his commanders in 1783) -Grand Central Terminal -South Street Seaport -St. Paul's Chapel He can also take a tour of the city on a double decker bus and get a history lesson in the process. I hope this information was very helpful. Good Luck. Native New Yorker and history buff."

"The museum of Natural history has the biggest planetarium in the north eastern sea-board. I love that museum."
plaidrabbit425 :
"I dont live in New York City, but I just visited there and I know a lot about the city. The city might not be "fascinating" as in having lots of historical stuff (they do have the Metropolitan Museum and the Museum of Natural History, though), but it is completely amazing - the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Ground Zero (your dad might think is historical - it's where the World Trade Center used to stand), CENTRAL PARK (I absolutely love!!) where you can get horse-drawn carriage rides, and more. Its the whole spirit of the city that is amazing. It's almost like I can hear the theme song playing - "New York, New York!" - no wonder they made a song about it. And there are so many places to go - it's bustling. Stores everywhere, restaurants everywhere, and a Starbucks on every corner. You will love it! And I sure hope your dad loves it too! And to answer your last question, I guess you could say the Upper East side of Manhattan is "rich", but then again, it's Manhattan - what else? The Upper West side is nice too, but I think the people are more liberal, artsy types (no offense to anyone, my opinion), and the southern part of it is more business and offices. Good luck with your Dad! -Rabbit"

Does anyone go to Edwards-Knox Central School in New York? or does anyone live in northern New York??

Goodache :
"New York State spans a large distance (6 other States) to the Canadian Border. I suggest getting the Name of the town and search for a local board for that town."

Oeth is no stranger to open source. In the early '90s he started Interport Communications, an ISP that eventually became the second largest in New York City. In that business he got "very familiar" with Apache Web servers and a host of open source tools.

Democratic and Republican White House hopefuls are making their final Super Tuesday pitches as voters in 24 states and American Samoa are heading to the polls. Super Tuesday is virtually a national primary day, and some of the biggest prizes of the primary season -- California, New York, Illinois, New Jersey, Missouri and Georgia --

First off, i have to congratulate the New York Giants on their World Championship. I was one of the many that counted them out before the game even started. As far as the game itself, i thought it was one of the more boring Super Bowls in recent memory. With the exception of the fourth quarter it was kind of hard to watch.
