Welcome to my New York!
What do you think of when you hear "New York"? The Statue of Liberty? The famous city skyline? The lights of Broadway?
They're all New York, sure. But there's another New York, that visitors rarely see. It's my New York - the city where I've lived for 30 years, since I came here from Australia. It's an amazing city, and I want to share it with you.
This is my New York. The places. The people. The seasons of the city. The "unwritten rules" of living here. I hope you enjoy it, and that, when you visit New York, you see some of my New York.
One caveat. Things change. And they change fast in New York. The restaurant you loved a year ago may be gone, or it may have a new owner and have changed completely. Or my tastes may be completely different from yours.
So enjoy my New York, but find your own!

http://www.nyctourist.com/map1.htm This is a useful site for visitors - lots of info about hotels, attractions, etc.
http://www.hopstop.com/ is useful for finding your way around the city, though it tends to focus on the subways, and I for one prefer buses.
