    Yeah, I guess it really works as a kind of 'escape from the hustle and bustle' type of thing. On a crowded touristy weekend day, it kind of has the opposite effect unfortunately.

    Got back on Wednesday morning after another wonderful time. I have only one fairly unusual thing to add to the "offbeat" thread you all may not be aware of:

    Following a browse through Hells Kitchen Flea if you walk back downtown along 10th avenue from 38th street to about 25th there are a load of busy taxi part shops and garages and old businesses. It feels really old NYC and not a sniff of new bars or gentrification.

    Reminded me of the kind of city scenes Editor likes to photograph. Very interesting walk

    1927 Funnier than he thinks he is.

    I've eaten at the UN dining room several times. It's awesome value for money. Although as you leave, after your eat as much as you want buffet, there is a notice appealing for contributions to help world hunger. The irony seemed lost on most diners!
