october 24-25; sixth time in the big apple. i think it gets more interesting the more you go. my first three times i went, i just hit times square and that was it. it gets extremely boring after a while. the last three times, i went to other places that are so much better than one of the biggest tourist attractions in the world. i've now been to soho, queens, long island city, noho, chinatown, and chelsea.  last week, i stayed in soho at the sohotel (adorable place; highly recommend). then my friends and i went to chelsea to check out some artists and galleries, then walked throughout the chelsea district for the rest of the day and found amazing shops. next day, we traveled through chinatown to get to doughnut plant, then to the new museum in soho, walked down bleeker street, then ate at teany (vegan restaurant), and back to broome and bowery to papabubble until our bus showed up. i highly recommend going to all of the places i just mentioned, minus the new museum. not my forte. might be yours though. :P
