>As long as I've been thinking about travel, I thought I'd relate a little story about traveling to NYC. My second year at NYU, my friend from high school and my sister came to visit me at the same time. It worked out nicely because they were able to sightsee together while I was in class. On one adventure that could only take place in New York city, they got lost on their way to South Street Seaport, and a man with a trench coat stopped and offered to help them. “You want directions?” the guy asked. He suddenly yanked his trench coat open... revealing pockets stuffed with maps. He pulled one out, showed them where they currently were, highlighted their route, and off he went.
