New York is one of the great cities for grand experiences on the cheap. Not to say that you can't have a great time and spend wads of cash, but the fact is you can have as much fun for nearly nothing. A few favorites of mine when I was at university in Manhattan in the mid-eighties were dim sum in Chinatown or kasha and varnishkes at any of a number of Ukrainian restaurants in the East Village. A ride on the Staten Island ferry or a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.
But it sounds like these days the Brooklyn Bridge may not be such a good idea.
O, the perils of a deteriorating infrastructure.
Poor New York.
The Swedish word for the day is expedit. It means cashier.
