    My first NY experience that I remember is walking the Brooklyn street that my grandmother lived on with my cousins and sticking these pod/seed/leaf things to our nose.
    My most memerable NY experience is my first Yankees game.

  4. I wish I could say my first experience was running into some celebrity, but no, mine is the fact my cab driver got beaten up. I guess he had cut off some people on a bike because the next thing I knew, we were at a stoplight and a strange man was banging on the passenger side window and screaming and kicked the side mirror off. The cab driver (who was no spring chicken) got out and the two began fighting while people gathered and two took pictures with their cellphones. Not maybe a postcard memory, but one I won't soon forget!


    Please enter me in the giveaway. I've never been to the big apple.

  6. Thrilled to have won a copy! I e-mailed you my info--thanks again!
