Other Concerts & Happenings That Weekend

Everything in NY is within walking distance. The island is only 3/4 of a mile wide. And every 20 blocks (north and south) is a mile.

That means 16th street to 42nd street is only a bit over a mile. (30 minutes walking time).

And the (clean, safe) subways make everything even more convenient.

Van Morrison, BTW, is at the United Palace Theater, from 10/12 to 10/14. Tickets are from around $80 to $250.

Other, more reasonably priced shows:

10/12 - Bowery Ballroom - The Raveonettes

10/12 - Tori Amos - WaMu Theater (Madison Sq. Garden)

10/12 - Mary Weiss (ex-Shangri-Las) - Southpaw, Brooklyn

and, if I get a Village Voice, I suspect I'll find dozens more....

That's a true New Yorker for you --one who thinks nothing of walking all over Manhattan. I'm the same way, although I've learned that many visitors get quite sore after a day of sightseeing!!

I'm in the city quite often "all by myself" and at all hours of the day and night. I have never had a problem. I'm not one for the subway system. I'm not afraid of taking the subways, I just don't understand (or call it stoo-pid) the A trains, B trains, E trains, and so forth. So, I get around with what God gave me....my two legs. There is so much to see and do, I'd be afraid I'd miss something if I didn't walk !!

Diane's right. NYC is fine.

Don't let any out-of-towners tell you otherwise.

I've lived and/or worked here since 1981.

I come into the city everyday to work on madison ave. I was never mugged. I haven't heard of anyone being mugged, threatened, or frightened in over 15 years.

Yes, in the 80's it was awful!! But so were fashion and hairstyles.

We visited NYC twice in 2005 and loved it, loved it, loved it. Never felt frightened walking around. But there was that weird-o pretending to be practicing yoga in Central Park that kept trying to attract my attention to his "junk" hanging out of his short shorts. :blink:

The timing doesn't work out for us for this show, we can only pray this is only the first of more to come.
