    I went a few years ago but loved it. I liked Ellis Island, Empire state building, The Guggenheim museum and the MOMA.

    Yeah, I love it... I went over summer to check out Columbia University. I don't like the subway, but that's only because i love london's tube so much.

    I've been there a few times, and had the chance to eat at Windows of the World restaurant at the top of one of the twin towers - that was pretty fantastic. Central park is very nice too, and battery park. The shopping is great, especially on fifth and madison.

    It's a great city ... there are too many things I love to mention them all!

    In terms of entrance fee? I have no idea ... but it's such a cool museum. I went there a while ago and there was the coolest Armani exhibition. Basically, the building is just one huge spiral walkway ... along the walkway there were so many of these fabulous dresses.

    we went to ground zero, it is so sad, the atmosphere around there is just so weird and you dont know how to act.
    i'm really glad i went though because after being there it has really made me realise what some people have to go through everyday, i mean imagine working next to it and have to relive what happened everyday-i know i wouldnt be able to do it.

    I it was quite expensive, about $15-$25. You can spend most of a day in there though, and the collection is amazing.

    Apparently according to my friend who lived in Holland for a while Lidl is the premier supermarket there, and the most prestigious. Quite interseting I thought.

    I was in NY in Janurary, FANTASTIC place I loved every second of it! Favourite part was probably going to the top of the Empire State. Ground Zero was eerie, such a quiet little are in the middle of this crazy city.
    Loved the place, can't say enough good things about it!

    he tried to take these 3 bottles of wine with him - they sed theyd have to take them away, but hed been craving wine for 2 whole days, and had only just bought it, so he wouldnt give it up. lol
    they just put it in this safe in the end and we went up, they searched us all really thorughly though
