When You're Young and Pretty--the photos

Photos from my adventures in New York are now up. My biggest regret about New York (other than being shunned by the weather) was that I didn't see any rats even though the locals insisted they are quite common.

As I understood it, the rats usually are found in the abandoned tunnels under the city and the sewers, but those are usually closed off. Supposedly you can also find them in alleys and backstreets at night, but it's not a good idea to go to places like that. Oh, and then there's the pier and docks at night too.. again not a good place to hang out at night.

So glad you had a fun time! You've seen more of America than I have now. ^^ P.S.: I love NYC, too. Only large city in the US that I'd consider living in, tho I suspect the winters would be too much for me. :p

Those are some neat photos. I wouldn't mind showing you around NYC next time you come back...if you do come back. Any chance of that?

I expect so. :) Ristin speaks very well of you. I didn't know you're in NY.

ferret MEEPS, was happy to share some time with you around NYC. I'm frustrated that we didn't have enough time for the
Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian, George Gustav Heye Center
, Strand Sookseller or The NY Public Library. It was fun puppeteering with you on the RTR show!

But what made it a rat motorcycle? Am I missing something?
