The NYC

Spent the weekend in NYC with a couple friends and had a great time. Highlights included:

- seeing Buddhist monks from Myanmar at the UN
- pepperoni and parmesagne at the Italian market in the Bronx's Little Italy. Gave our leftovers to a homeless guy
- Steve McQueens at Sweet Ups
- being in town while the Yankees lost 2 playoff games
- bumping into an old college pal in Union Square

Also couldn't help but notice the signs saying "No honking $350 fine" along many of the Manhattan streets. It appears to be helping. There was still some honking, but very little and very little red light running like we see in the Twin Cities, too. Seemed quite civil and it is an impressive city.
