NYC traffic and parking tho is a nightmare and whenever I pass through there i think to myself how do all these peopke want to live in such congestion with concrete everywhere and everything costs so much more money. Drivers are super aggressive and people just pull right out in front of you even if the path is clear behind you. Even after midnight there can be 10 to 15 minute delays at the bridges and toll booths.
September 29, 2019, 7:20 PM · Thanks! I live in the Montana part of NY but love the city.
September 29, 2019, 9:53 PM · I went last year and wrote about my experience. Loved it. Wish I could make it out again, but am not keen to take the long trip alone. (If someone who lives in DC/MD/VA wants to go with me, get in touch, please.)

Sounds amazing and fun regardless. Would be great to have the daughter play a range.

September 30, 2019, 8:34 AM · Jeff - because people who live in NYC do not rely on cars to get around. We utilize our feet, bicycles, subways, trains, buses, and sometimes taxis/uber/lyfts and even the ferry.
September 30, 2019, 9:06 PM · It's been a long time since I've been to a cintemporary violin makers exhibitioon.
