New York State of Mind- Tuesday May 13th, 2008

Good morning!

After having a spontaneous, fun evening last night in NYC (Shoutouts to Mike Dillon , Phil, Kevin from the Village Pourhouse, Steve Smith of the New York Giants, and Joe Hanagan of the Washington Nationals, and the people over at Johnny Utah's) I woke up this morning in a true New York State of Mind. I have been fortunate to travel to many different cities in the world and have had some great times but there is no where else that has a place in my heart like the Big Apple. Many times there has been nothing going on and then suddenly you have this amazing night out on the town. There is no other place where you can witness or experience some of the most zaniest events. Better yet, even be able leave your house at 1:00 in the morning and have a quality choice of foods you would like to eat and a variety of places to go hang out at. Even though times have changed in New York City, there is no place like it. It's amazing the amount of culture that is here. People truly take that for granted. I lived in LA about five years ago for a year, and when I came back I realized how much miss about it and took for granted.

Today I am giving a homage to New York City.

You know I have to hit you with some Harlem Flavor

The Apollo

A classic landmark

The Mecca of all Street Basketball Courts Rucker Park.

The Polo Grounds is where some blacktop dreams emerged.

You never know what you will encouter on a New York City Subway

Now that is what you call zany!

Time Square will always have some interesting going on as well

If you watch Howard Stern you proably have seen the Naked Cowboy before.

Or what may happen at party

A night a Pacha.

It was always beautiful to come into town and seeing these lit up.

RIP to those who lost their lives in the attacks.

There's nothing like being Champions

New York Giants!

Or 26 time World Champions

Let's go Yanks!

New York State of Mind

Billy Joel

Live At Yankee Stadium


You know I had to give you the street version as well.

Please post some of the memories or anything that you like about New York

I can say this is the one thing I ABSOLUTELY do NOT like about NYC.

They are disgusting!!!
