Looks like I will be in your fair city (the first time ever, I may add) for the Independance Day weekend.

I am looking for ideas of what to do, where to stay from those of you that know.

I will also gladly buy any of you jackasses a beer if you have time for a link-up.

I assume firearms are out of the question, so I will not be bringing any - but what are the rules about knives in cars?

You can carry a knife, but it must be concealed and can be no longer than 4 inches. No Gravity, or spring loaded openers. Off the top of my head, those are the major parts of it. I'll see if I can dig up the actual ordinace and add to this.

So I guess the 18" Khukri I keep in my car should stay behind ?

If it stays in your car, I don't think it would be a problem, BUT why risk the chance of having some nimrod break in and take it on ya. Leave it home.

Adam_White: East River Drive gets REALLY crowded...better views can be had from Queens and the Brooklyn promenade. Otherwise, stake out a spot on the western sidewalk with a clear view of the sky on First Avenue. Bring a folding chair and a cooler.

If you travel plans allow it, try and book a downtown hotel room (the Millenium near the WTC has recently reopened) with an East-facing room on a high floor.

Lastly, think about FMJunkie's New Jersey shoot at Fort Dix on the 5th. maybe 90 min from Manhattan and full of guys with guns for you to borrow...

... Do they launch the fireworks off one of the bridges over the East River?

... Any other strategic spots to watch 'em?

... Hey Adam_White, I just got back from a walk down your street. Although it's not really "uppidy" you are just a block or two east of the "Center of the Universe" (Times Square). You and the family will have a grand time. Just don't spend it in your hotel for anything other than SSS&S.

... I'll be in town whilst your visit here, and while no doubt the local gang know where all the bones are buried, I have certainly learned where the more significant points of interests are.


... IM me for my cell number if you'd like.
