Enjoying your stay?
A normal day in Herald Square, unlike today
I love New York.
I know its a facile statement, but it's not.
Only the blind would think that New York welcomed the RNC with anything but contempt. Even my mother is mocking them. My mother.
I'll do a round up later, but this is pretty much an open thread about the convention and protests tonight.
Oh yeah, for my fellow bloggers who want to experience New York while at the Tank.
Walk east one block, turn on to 9th Avenue and walk up one of the best restaurant rows in the city. If you get tired of donuts and pizza, if you have the cash, some of the best inexpensive restaurants in the city are on 9th Avenue.
It's something the tourists miss, the delegates will definitely miss, but New Yorkers love. I don't think there are any great places, but a lot of interesting ones.
There are a lot of other places to see. If you want ideas, just e-mail me. I just feel that with all these fine guests in our city, there's more to life than pizza, beer and donuts, although, like a cop, I love all three:)
Oh yeah, has anyone noticed that the black delegates look even stupider than the white ones?
There are a shitload of arrests tonight. Indymedia has reports and I'll post on what the local news says after Jenna and Not Jenna and Zombie First Lady babble their way through their speech.
