    You're too fat to go there.

    Not sure if this is one of those parody threads or what, but no, NYC is not "worth the hype". It is a pretty dull place in 2014. I've lived here since 2001 and it's been steadily getting duller and more homogenized since around '05.

    Lots of BBC in Harlem.

    Leave wifey in Harlem and you can go eat at the TGIF in Times Square, Mike. :ublob:

    Those sidewalks are crowded, Mike. No room for a portly gentleman like yourself.

    I go there when Phish plays NYE (They aren't playing there this year, @Daveindiego !)

    I have never been there in the summer, but from what I have gathered, it seems like a really fun city. I don't know the "hype" so I cant speak to whether or not it lives up to it, but its definitely worth a visit.

    It's the only City that matters. /thread

    Stay in Baltimore though, Mike. NY has enough fat kweers as is.
