One of the things I love best about New York is the open all night energy.
At 10 and 11 pm on a Monday, when even the main streets in other US cities are locked up, dark and deserted, New York is filled with people hanging on stoops, leaving (and entering)restaurants, walking down streets and clearly going somewhere interesting.
Last night after I flew in, I ended up in a sushi bar at 10:30 pm eating dinner; tonight, I came out of the movies and walked a while down Broadway, before heading back to the room.
It feels like not only are the places open, the people are open. They’re up and around hand aving fun rather than shutting down for the night.
