I'd rather do THIS ( https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-45968315 ) than be stuck in an abusive, rotten marriage!

My parents were the WORST at "sizing up" people. They prided themselves on being able to sort the good from the bad but they consistently got it 100% BACKWARDS!

The non-drinking, non-doping, non-smoking, non-abusive guys they FORBID me to see!

They wanted me to marry an alcoholic, pedophile, doping, smoking PIMP who certainly would have been abusive given the time and opportunity!

Seriously! That's what they chose as the best pick! A guy over twice my age and I was barely a teen.

I've always wanted to visit during the holidays.

We need to plan this..

Especially since we know someone there  Chuckle

Don't expect me to take you to touristy shit like TGIF in times Sq and the empire state building.
We will do the underground candlelight catacombs tour and eat at Beetlehouse.
Yeah3

The catacombs aren't going to work for me. Chuckle

I'll hang out at the hotel when you two go do that.

Times Square doesn't appeal to me. I just want to walk around the city and see everything. NY fascinates me. I come from Indiana, it's obviously nothing like where you are. When late night comes here everything is closed, it's quiet everywhere, there's not much action, which is nice, I'm used to it growing up in it but I've always been curious about what it's like to live somewhere that's active 24/7.

It's an awesome place to visit Deb. If you have never been, you gotta go at least once in your lifetime. Having a native New Yorker show you around makes for the best experience, they know where all the really cool stuff is that you would never find. I don't know if a regular person off the street can get into any of those sky scrapers, but I got to go up in one for work. (Now that I think back, they did have security that checked us out before being allowed on the elevators.) It was amazing looking out the windows. My first thought was, I can totally see how Batman would be able to swing between buildings using his bat-line and grapple. Chuckle

Totally agree it is well worth the visit. Ate at a place in Greenwich Village, I believe the name of the place was "Heavenly Ham". Best split pea soup and ham sandwich I think I have ever had.

We really don't live too far away from there. Ball and chain definitely wants to visit as well. I want to go without the kids. Maybe next year. Yeah3

Yeah Greenwich Village is neat place. Couple of the sales reps I worked with took us techs out to eat there one night, it was an Italian place that was like down below the side walk and had apartments or some kind of buildings above it. There was nothing fancy about the place and all the staff there spoke fluent Italian. They took care of us like we were celebrities or something. The food was insane, and SO much of it. I think it took us 2 1/2 hours to eat dinner. Funny thing I noticed... when we arrived it was still day light, the people walking around looked like average every day folks. When we left it was dark and the people walking around had totally changed. It went from everyday average people to what-in-the-hell? gothic type people walking around, like once the sun went down the vampires came out.

You reminded me of an Italian place in Chicago, Maggiano's. Great food and too damned much of it.

My God. I'm so sorry.
I hope you are OK now....
I read about a woman that married herself....
Also a decent option.
Well it is  Chuckle

Thank you, yes, I'm okay now.  I went maverick and got away from them in time to have a normal life of choice of partner.
