|Myself in Wonderland (Central Park)|
Now my friend Jen did provide me with a subway map, a city map, and a book called New York's Unique and Unexpected Places by Judith & Alexandra Stonehill prior to my trip, but she followed up on Facebook as she glanced at pictures I had taken and posted. She suggested places in that would be of interest based on what she knew of me. For instance, I had take a picture next to the Shakespeare statue in Central Park. After posting it she suggested I find the Alice and Wonderland statue, which I did within the next few days. She sent me links on how to get good priced tickets to Broadway shows and she passed on information about New York via Facebook knowing that I would probably not pick up a newspaper (or read my New York Times i-phone ap) while I was here.

My trip is almost over. I am in a hotel room with the worse Internet ever and so my ability to update picture posts has gone downhill. Yet, I keep people up to date with posts about my adventures so that they can add further suggestions in my final days here. It helped that two of my friends from where I live came into town to show me their favorite restaurants and attend the Broadway show La Cage with me. My suggestion to anybody traveling is to post frequent updates to your social network pages. You never know who can help you find the experience you'll never forget.
