Elliot, North Carolina (US)

December 01, 2005

IntfouroneMy name is Elliot and I am 57 years old. I moved to North Carolina one year ago but I used to live in New York before and still have my daughter in New Jersey. This time, I stayed in New York three days with my wife. I try to travel as much as possible since I am retired (Canada, Panama, Aruba, Hawaii…).

Since I am originally from New York, I didn’t want to visit anything in particular. I just walked around the City. I am also a big fan of Music Halls! I have seen about 50 Music Halls in my life and lately, I went to see Tarzan and Jersey Boys. Jersey Boys is the best music hall I have ever seen: there were five standing ovations! We also went to two restaurants: Carmine, which is a very good Italian restaurant, and McCormick & Schmick's, which is a seafood restaurant. At McCormick & Schmick’s, the food was excellent, the atmosphere very good, but the service was bad! I love Broadway shows, so my best experience was just to attend Music Halls. My worst one was the service at McCormick & Schmick's! I definitely recommend coming to New York to see some Broadway shows, to see the Statue of Liberty, to have a boat ride in Battery Park, to visit the Village and Chinatown! There are so many things to do here that you have to keep busy! Don’t be afraid of taking mass transportation, it is safe and very convenient! Just make sure to find a nice hotel with a Continental Breakfast included and other amenities, because New York, along with San Francisco and Hawaii, is one of the most pricy cities in the US, but you want to see it!
