hotel booked...

alright anyone who's been to NYC or knows it... do you have any comment/suggestion on staying near 38th and broadway at this hotel, the americana inn, or west side near chelsea at this hotel, the Jane hotel. the Jane hotel looks really cool and it's cheap and a good friend (you know who you are mr. tall smart and handsome) recommended it for the feel of the area. However last time I stayed at the americana and enjoyed being right there in the middle of things.
I guess I'm pretty much romaticizing the visit already since it's in December, all I can think about are movies like Whit Stillman's "Metropolitan" (sean, rent it now if you haven't seen it!) and/or some Woody Allen film. all the background shots of the look and feel of NYC during the holiday season. well that's the part I'm excited about when I go. BTW, I'm going the first part of December...woot woot. my austin bud will be there that weekend and P that I met in santa fe is interested in going to see a show like "our town" off broadway with me. also I get a month of solid gym time now that I got that extra bit of motivation.
oh yeah also I got the beard back since a few weeks ago until Thanksgiving. and I know I'm a big weirdo ---- but I don't mess with guys when I have a beard. yeah really strange, but it's just my thing, and I like the beard when the seasons are changing this time of year, also I like it for the professor look, and one less thing I have to do in the morning, shave! ha
