    Sep 13, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Culture, convenience - a unique experience.

  • Hoofer's Paradise

    Sep 11, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: New York is a dynamic city of widely varying neighbourhoods, each lending its character to make up an eclectic whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. The city pulsates with activity and heart, a tangible energy you can feel in the atmosphere!
    Cons: Accidentally ending up in a dangerous part of town can turn a fun trip into a nightmare.

    Summary: When you hear someone say 'New York City', they're actually talking about Manhattan. Even though the city of New York is comprised of 5 boroughs, New Yorkers (as in 'Manhattanites') are so ethnocentric as to discount the others as necessary appendages ... read more

  • Nathan Lane in “The Man Who Came To Dinner”

    Aug 28, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good actors and interesting story.
    Cons: It was hard to see from certain sections. Perhaps it could be remedied by having more of the action taking place in center stage, rather than to one side or the other. The left side of the theater was particularly bad.

    Summary: Never having seen Nathan Lane in anything he had done previously, I took my daughter’s word that he would be a good actor in “The Man Who Came To Dinner”. We scouted out the theater beforehand so we could gauge how long it would take to walk there from ... read more
