    Man…Tomio’s Sushi (On Thompson and Houston) is a trip

    Very good sushi and sashimi…
    I adapted this routine from someone I heard of….
    We would stand on the line for like 45 min. to an 1 hour (just for sushi)
    But there’s the best part..there is a deli across the street, owed an INDIAN man
    I would go in and grap my favorite beer (Sam Adams) and stand on line and drink and talk with ur friends until our table is ready!

    The line LOOOOONG but worst very NY mintue…yeah…man !thanks everyone!

    I went to NYC 2 summers ago and it was a great experience. Our hotel was scary. there was a peep hole and the elevator felt like a gas chamber. there was no hot water. try showering at 5am in ice cold water. your hair felt like icycles and there were bunk beds. haha…this is what u get when u havev a friend who refused to pay an extra 20 dollars.

    The first night we were there it rained and we all ran in the rain to our hotel room. it was a warm rain. I was suprised that none of us got sick from it.

    People were friendly and we saw all the tourist attractions in two days. it was the fastest two days of my life. the ferry ride to the statue of liberty was rocky, sticky, windy, salty, but at the same time very fun and i wouldn’t mind doing it again.

    Seeing ground zero was very emotional.

    I wouldn’t mind waiting an hour for sushi either, aslong as it is worth it.

    Here is a short list of what I missed about the City:
    1. living in my noisy cardboard box size loft in the Upper East Side.
    2. taking a stinky, no a/c, overcrowded Lexington Ave. train to the job that I hate on Wall St.
    3. going to my favorite Chinese beef jerky shop on Mulberry St. and Chinese dumpling shop on Katherine St.
    4. hunting for designer bargain at Century 21 (both downtown and Brooklyn),Loehmann’s in the Bronx and Woodbury Common in upstate.
    5. buying bagels from Tal Bagel(E. 86th between 1st and 2nd Ave)
    6. ice skating at Wollman Rink in Central Park.
    7. Hanging out every night for 2 weeks at Flushing Meadow watching the US Open.
    8. Grocery shopping at Zabar.
    9. Hanging out every Sunday at the Guggenheim, Whitney, Met or MOMA.
    10. and lastly spending time at my 3 best friends: Barney’s, Bergdorf and Bloomie.
