Been going to the Big Apple since the World Fair in '64. First time I took one of my daughter's there with her friends, since she was a Philly kid, she insisted on seeing the City on her own w/her friend. They felt totally at ease. Came back to Marriott East Side later that afternoon and found the two of them performing in the bar. Not bad for 10-year-olds. I now stay at the Marquis on Times Square and have a designated room on the 45th floor. Catch 1/2 shows every time I am in town which is usually hockey-related since the NHL is my life. I love Hell's Kitchen and my favorite Italian restaurant outside of Firenza is "Po" in the West Village. Already got my tix for South Pacific this summer.
