"I should like to spend the whole of my life traveling, if I could borrow another life to spend at home." -- Hazlitt

380--New York: Are you dense?
@ CherieSpotting     Mar 12 2007 - 12:44 PST
cherie writes: New York City is full of socialites and misfits, dreamers and entrepreneurs. From 5th Ave to Park Ave, from the United Nations to FAO Schwartz, from Times Square to Broadway to Central Park, Cherie explores New York City and finally answers the question: Who’s in Grant’s tomb?

Is New York a city of chaos or possibility? Do the towering skyscrapers inspire and unite? Or do they separate and divide? Perhaps Meyer Burger said it best: “Each man reads his own meaning into New York”. Come spend a day with Cherie on the bustling streets of Manhattan.
