Hi Jeremiah,

I really like your blog! Incidentally, I also have a blog about New York, but it's primarily aimed at helping newcomers adjust. If you're interested, it's at www.newnewyorkers.info.

Thanks!
Sarah

Thanks for the note on the Carlton Arms - I've always wanted to see the interior of that place.
