show Michael, who is living currently in Manhattan. And when I started to think about doing a show about New York City, I thought of Michael, who's a friend who has been our tour guide before in Manhattan and knows the city better than I think Anybody else I know and has a one or two opinions about New York City, wouldn't you say? That's fair to say. Alright, are a few more, actually. Welcome to you. Can't thank you. Can't be in New York and not having opinion. Welcome to the show, Michael. Thank you. So, first of all, you're actually in the Upper West Side? Yes. And that you're in Manhattan, right? I'm actually on the northwest corner of Central Park at 110th and Central Park West on. So you could pinpoint that on your Google map. And I'm not sure that everybody understands that New York City, when we talk about New York City isn't even just isn't one place. There's a lot of different neighborhoods, different boroughs even You wanna give us a quick overview of New York City? Well, one of the I think critical trivia pieces about New York is that it actually consists of really several islands. Alright, so Manhattan is an island. Um, Queens and Brooklyn are both on an island Long Island on, um, Staten Island is obviously an island, so it's It's a city that is mostly on islands. On the only part that's not on an island is is the Bronx, which is a part of the part of the mainland. So there's a lot of bridges and tunnels and waterways on DSO. You have to sort of factor that in as your as your getting around. Um, subways pretty much take care of all that for you. But every once in a while there's a you know, a bumper hiccup. Uh, so I think that's kind of one of the more sort of, uh, interesting historical tidbits. Thio New York City is that unlike most other cities, it's actually a it looks like a place like Hawaii. It's actually a collection of, uh, either whole entire islands or parts of parts of the island on, then focusing for most people. When they go to New York City, they go to Manhattan, right? Um, although what I was about toe chime in here with is If you really want to see New York City, you should, for part of your trip another whole thing. I would certainly say that that overwhelmingly, most people's focus should be on the Manhattan. That's like the sort of jewel of the city. But to make it least one excursion, um, Thio. What I'll call a really New York neighborhood, which by some people's opinions and mine included, would by definition need to be in what's called an outer borough. Um, Manhattan is Manhattan, and then the outer boroughs are the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. Um, you could probably skip Staten Island, except for the Staten Island ferry, which is probably the best deal in New York City. I don't know what it cost these days, but it's in the neighborhood of a dollar, maybe two of the most, and you get a lot of two for three for ones. There you go, right across New York Harbor. You get spectacular views of barons on a bridge, um, Staten Island itself, obviously, um, Statue of Liberty on Ellis Island and then, of course, in the Manhattan skyline. Downtown skyline. So, and it's also generally consistently ranked in the top three or five like most romantic thing to do on a date in New York. So definitely put that on your list, but you don't really want to get off at the other side. You on Staten Island is just a residential Robert Hood and very much like New Jersey, which is closer to than anything else, right? It's just a lot of houses, although there's probably some great Italian restaurants if you know where to find them, Um, but anyways, or you know, you'll get off the boat and then immediately get back on another protest.
