  1. I was in NYC this past weekend for the first time since 2019, mostly in the Theater District, but we also took a walk over to Roosevelt Island. I noticed a lot of big improvements since the last time I was there. I have said many times that Manhattan would be a marvelous, walkable city if it wasn't for all the traffic. Well, I noticed a lot of new road diets, bike lanes, no-car plazas, and general improvements to walking. Traffic was still pretty bad, but MUCH better than the last time I was there. I really loved it. Also, folks were really lovely. I've been to NYC several times and have generally had positive experiences with folks. But this time, I don't know, it was different. It's hard to explain, but folks were really lovely.
    The only real "negative" is the same negative you find almost everywhere in the US. Drivers. They're awful. I think the drivers in NYC might be some of the worst, not because their behavior is worse than drivers in say Houston. It's more because…seriously, what the hell are you doing driving a personal vehicle in one of the most walkable/public transit-rich places in the United States? The only answer I can think of is, "because you're a selfish asshole." That makes their bad driving behavior that much more upsetting to me.
    Anyway, thanks for the video. I hope it's not 3 more years before my next visit (actually, we're thinking about coming back in a couple months…but that's iffy). I love seeing all the improvements and I hope it keeps moving in good directions. Reclaiming the city for people instead of for car warehousing could help make it such a wonderful place to live.

  2. Great job! I normally visit NYC on business a few times each quarter, and between appointments I wander about with my camera. I've only been to the city twice since the pandemic started, though, Your videos are just like being there.

  3. New York has been changed a lot back in the 80s 90 s Manhattan was dirty city to honest especially in the 81 till the end of the 90s the Duce was the main entertainment street 42th street was full of kung fu flicks movies 24 hours movies crack dealers everywhere especially in 41 street and 8th avenue. Much cleaner now thanks for the video bro

  6. This is now my go to video when I’m having trouble sleeping. I suffer from insomnia. Your voice is very soothing and helps me focus on what you’re saying rather that focusing on my stressors. Thank you very much for these videos. Not only are they super informative but they are super relaxing. I love Manhattan and I feel like I’m walking with you.
    BTW: you must be in very good shape. Walking these great distances is great for your overall health. Clearly you must have really good walking shoes

  9. To each his own! NY City, the big apple is a place I want NO parts of! Not only is the cost of living outrageous, I just don't understand how Everyday Americans can SURVIVE there!

  10. Native NYorker here now livin' in Ohio. Have'n't been there in years. New buildings, newer Times Square but the heart and soul is always the same! Loved the video!

  11. It was kind of a lengthy video but that’s OK I love the whole thing of it my favorite part was when you get into Times Square thanks again keep up the great work happy holidays
