Macy's Day parade

I agree with Ttrockwood...the streets surrounding the parade route start closing down the day before Thanksgiving.
Very, very difficult to get around.
Don't even attempt to drive on the west side that day.

How is Ben Ash Delicatessen still in business?

Why you ask?...it's because of the tourists.
With the Carnegie Deli temporarily closed and the Stage Deli shutdown years ago,
many tourists do not know to head downtown to Katz's or the Second Avenue Deli.

The majority of the Yelp posters are from out of town.
They want to experience a true NYC deli...little do they know.

Surprisingly disappointed at Katz's

I hope none of the 50+ lost their tickets...LOL

Shorts! - And Reservation Timing Help

If you both are wearing "walking" shorts...Bermuda length with a nice top...sure

but if she is wearing "Daisy Dukes" - super short shorts...definitely not tasteful
avoid flip flops and socks with sandals!

try to have some class

why Phantom of the Opera?...so many other better shows on Broadway.
