24 Hours in New York

In 24 hours in New York, I had the following experiences:

  1. Mess up my signature on a kesuba, making the mesader kidushin write it all over again (how often do YOU sign your name in Hebrew?)
  2. Get a $60 parking ticket for parking on the correct side of a No Standing sign. Is there a way of fighting this over the phone? I don’t want to do it in person. Also, the person who gave me the ticket put down some wrong information on the ticket, so I’m guessing there is a way of fighting it?
  3. Figured out that it takes longer to find parking than it does to actually get to your destination, even if you’re destination is 30 minutes away.
  4. Almost smashed into a car on the BQE who decided not to take off any snow from the top of their car. The woman braked, causing the snow to fall and cover the entire windshield, blinding her, which caused her to all out stop on the BQE.

    Some good things:

    1. Hungry-Man Special at Garden of Eat-In – $4.95 got me a big pancake, two scrambled eggs, home fries, two slices of toast, coffee, and a tiny cup of orange juice.
    2. Krispy Kutlet’s at Subsational

      Note that the only good things involved food. Maybe that’s why I keep going back.

        We have driven behind people on the BQE who had their back windshield completely covered. You just hope they don’t decide to change lanes and smash into you since they can’t see out their rear view mirror.

        One time we were in NY when there was snow there were at least 3 of these cars on the BQE.

        This is the #1 most important thing about living in NY. Glad I caught a fleeting glance of you guys and the baby. Next time you will have to knock on my door!

        I was in NY last Sunday for a wedding. While going there can be extraordinarily frustrating, I find it to be somewhat rewarding because it reminds me how glad I am not to live there.

        Yes, you can fight your ticket online, especially if there’s an error on the ticket it should be dismissed!
