This is my third time in New York and I've decided to try new things in this city. So on day one I went exploring the Hudson Bay park area. Its all been done up on the west side of mnhattan island with cycleways parks and recreation facilities. I then wandered back through Soho and NYU back to my friend Karl's, and had lunch along University Place.
I had got in touch with an old friend through politics - Ashley - who has just moved down to teach and research at New York's Colombia Business School. He and I have always got along really well - and so Tuesday night I was given a great tour of the lower east side - starting at Schillers Bar/Restaurant, we then basically did a pub crawl of the best and worst bars that the lower east side had to offer.
