The only time I got utterly lost was in 1988 or so in Clinton, IN.
East Harlem is quieter, but I'm by the river and Ward's/Randall's Island so it's really great for the running I need to do, and I'm far enough south (100th) that I can walk to all the area bars/restaurants, which are either farther south (by 96th) or west (by Lex).
You live on the Upper Upper East Side
So, anyone want to rank the best walking around stadiums?
Welcome to the neighborhood Blastin!
Cleveland’s new manager said he got lost Monday making the two-block walk from his apartment to the ballpark for the Indians’ home opener against the New York Yankees.
OK, I haven't been to Cleveland (yet) - is the setup of the downtown so different that one could do this? The reason I ask is because I've been to NY (Yankee Stadium and Shea), Boston (Fenway), Chicago (old and new Comiskey as well as Wrigley), SF (Candlestick), Detroit (Tiger Stadium), Cincinnati (Riverfront), Pittsburgh (3 Rivers Stadium), Oakland, LA and San Diego - every ball park I've ever been to was large enough that I could see the actual stadium from 2 blocks away. Can you literally not see the stadium in Cleveland when you're only 2 blocks away?
Then I figured out why everyone was being so friendly when one evening I was walking home and was approached by a kid who said, "Excuse me officer, do you have the time?"
The mocking is ridiculous. I lived in Williamsburg for the longest time, and whenever I told someone exactly where, I was accused of living in Bushwick and pretending to live in Williamsburg.
While there's nothing wrong with verifying zip code cred. that's a little over the top. My faves are people that tell me they live in Chicago, only to find out they live in Crystal Lake, Sandwich or Gurnee. It's not I like I live in Germany and need a more general idea.
Once you cross 96th, it's Spanish Harlem (not sure what the Western boundary between Spanish Harlem and Harlem is).
Bah. Compared to Tokyo, so's New York!
San Fran's nice, but way too small to be "The City".
