Same thing I do... I usually stay in Jersey b/c it is much cheaper, take the train in late AM/early afternoon and walk around all day. Though, usually my first day I take the subway down to Grenwich Villiage to see Electric Lady Studios and a few Bob Dylan spots.

I have a blast everytime I am there, but that said, I am always glad when I get home. I personally can not go a long time without the trees and greenery of rural areas. The concrete and pavement as far as you can see gets to me after a while. I am just not a city guy at heart.

I've lived in NYC (Brooklyn to be exact) for a few years now and never get tired of walking around the city. Walked all the way from work on E8th st to the Beacon for each of the shows and it still hasn't gotten old.

This was our 5th Beacon run in a row and we ( wife ) would walk about 10-15 miles a day when we are there , now that we know the city better we catch the subway everyday , we will walk say from Central Park to the " Village ' and then catch the subway home . This year we stayed in the Upper West Side ( 79th street ) and we loved it , walked to and from the Beacon every night and its such a cool area I could definately live there , never made it to Brooklyn thou we did last time , a week is not that much time to check out such a huge city . WE LOVE NEW YORK

It is a long walk but you don't realize it when your visiting , some days we have to have a snooze before we head to the Beacon .

I love the Brooklyn Beer ( your signature ) this year I brought a dozen of the lager home with me . I wish I could buy it here , can't have everything .

It's pretty good stuff. I never know what the flavors I like in a beer are but it is similar in taste to a Sam Adams only better and similar to an IPA (IMO).

Its pretty much on Tap everywhere in the city, try it if you haven't for those visiting NYC.

Thanks for appreciating it.

I'm born and raised, and when my daughter was really young and would complain about walking everywhere I would explain to her that all those people she sees everywhere could have taken their vacations anywhere - but they chose where she lived. She's older now and she gets it, just in time to ship her off to some small town for college next year!

Well Brooklyn Brewery has several different beers, and are more Germanic than most East Coast breweries, so I am a fan - definitely better than Sam Adams! I drink a lot of their IPA in the Summer, and their lager is nice and flavorful, plus some other quality brews. But I think my favorite Brooklyn brewery is Six Point (http://www.sixpointcraftales.com/ ) down in Red Hook - love their Brown Ale. I am going to miss drinking that at McCarren Pool parties this Summer.

Now that I think of it, I prob walk a lot more than I realize. Whenever I am with friends from out of town they complain about all the walking and they walk really slow compared to me.

Haha, same here. I will walking down the street, carrying on, just to turn around to find my friend is half a block back at the previous cross-walk waiting for the light to change.

After several decades in and around NYC, I am still in love with the city.

Glad to read many of you feel so much love for the place.

I also get annoyed when people don't walk fast enough for me. I'm always in a rush and hate being behind tourists. I need to find a way to take a chill pill and slow down once in a while!

For sure, the New York music scene is unparalleled. I lived in Denver for 8 years and we had to subsist on local bands (not bad, BTW) and the Denver heavy hitters like Neil Young, Santana, Phish, Dave Matthews, Mule, and of course the ABB at Red Rocks.

But Denver often gets missed by national touring acts because it's WAY out of the way and not economically feasible as a tour stop. Also, artists like Van Morrison, Clapton, or Winwood aren't gonna pick Denver for their occasional one- or two-night random shows. And U2 isn't doing any free shows on the street or at the local park like they do in NYC.

God bless New York and all it has to offer. And...never forget 9/11.
