  1. Hate to tell you, but the “best cheesecake in the world” comes from Junior’s Restaurant, not Maxie’s.

    Guess you’ll have to come back.

  2. Make sure you jump in front of taxis and make them angry too.

  3. Judging how many people drive in NYC, I think it might be a bit of a fine line between me jumping in front of a taxi and having one accidently hit me.

    I know that car drivers in NYC aren’t anymore reckless than driver anywhere else. It’s just that the bar is just set much higher with keeping up with the cars around you. The only driving I have done in the city is driving through it at 3 a.m. If I drove during the day, I would be eaten alive with my MidWestern state driving skill.
