long weekend at home in the city

POST #    331

with long weekends, many people around the country go somewhere to take advantage of the extra day off work, especially this weekend, the last weekend of the summer. new yorkers are no exception. they leave the city for the hamptons (to think that people look down on people from long island coming in to the city...talk about hypocritical) and other points outside of the city limits. i however, am one that thinks long weekends in new york are actually a good time. sure, there are a fair amount of tourists in town (us new yorkers think of them as a necessary evil for the economy), but there are also fewer "natives" so the normal throng of people everywhere is reduced to a tolerable level. this allows a new yorker to take advantage of the things that are sometimes harder to do, like eat at a chic restaurant. of course, being a lazy-ass, i probably won't do anything out of the ordinary.
