Anyway, experienced that view of the Tunnel quite a bit!

I loved the Village! The PIZZA!!! We used to hit the little Mom & Pop neighborhood grocers to grab some fresh fruit (already sliced/cut, and wrapped in small packages) to snack on while wandering around. We usually got to the Village sometime in the evening, and we'd stay until at least midnight or later....usually later!

We also used to go hang out in Washington Square, and enjoy the musicians, dancers, entertainers, and whatever! (and there was a LOT of whatever!)

Abso-friggin'-lutely!!! The City that NEVER sleeps!!! The sights...the sounds....nothing like it anywhere! And if you're looking for something to do......you'll find it there! And if you're a people watcher......you'll overload your circuits!!! Times Square at night.....AWESOME!!!

Until you've experienced it....you haven't experienced it! Not like Chicago.....LA....Vegas......Atlanta.....none of them or there kind! NYC is uniquely NYC!

I'll probably be there in July......staying at The Presidential on 48th west of Broadway. Might take in a few shows.....“Tale of Two Cities” is produced by a guy that was born, raised, and schooled here in my area, and he's taking us on a back-stage tour. Lots of other great shows available too!
