If you’re not bothered about getting off the boat and on to to island to look at the Statue of Liberty, you can just take the free Staten Island Ferry.
Access to several museums is by way of a “recommended donation”. You can do a Homer Simpson but the amount is usually fare for what you’ll experience.
Remembering my ID is a lot easier than persuading seven feet and 400 pounds of muscle with ears to let you in the bar anyway.
There is no exam comparable with The Knowledge here in New York. Six taxis turned down my fare when I eventually hailed them last Friday night as they were worried about getting lost somewhere along the short trip into Brooklyn. I’ve since been advised that this is illegal.

Flickr has a bandwidth limit unless you’re a Pro user. I hadn’t found the “resize picture before uploading” option and uploading my photos full-size soon ate through it. I used 93% of it in four days, partly thanks to uploading some of the same pictures multiple times when having wireless connection issues. I also fixed my Flickr link.
