    This, I remember specifically my Time Warner bill was two pages of the actual bill but 8-10 pages of advertisements and legal stuff.

    No answer yet, unless my investigator wants to see how often I frequent Qdoba I'm guessing we only need the first page.

    Anyone have any ideas for sightseeing/places to go where I can take my daughters (under 5). Just trying to plan my trip for next week and was hoping to get some advice. Well be in town the 7th through the 11th if that helps.

    Thanks

    Can't go wrong with the Museum of Natural History. Took my 5 year old niece there and she loved it, right by central park too if the weather is nice.

    Seconded Museum of Natural History and Central Park, plus that is just a nice area to walk around in general. Maybe take them down to Ground Zero....show them what motivates their dad to do what he does.

    Thanks man.

    Anyone have any mom and pop type restaurants that they can recommend or at least something unique. Always looking for a good Mexican place, if anyone knows one.

    Already have passes to go to 9/11 memorial. Debating on whether taking my youngest, she's almost 2, just because she has no volume control on her mouth but extremely loud and just don't want her to disturb others or be disrespectful.

    Not mexican, but in terms of food that would be fun for your kids if you make your way downtown:


    crazy good mac n' cheese joint

    http://www.smacnyc.com/


    rice pudding place (looks like their site is being worked on at the moment, so here's yelp)

    http://www.yelp.com/biz/rice-to-riches-new-york


    peanut butter and jelly place that they'd most likely dig


    http://ilovepeanutbutter.com/sandwichshop



    (I swear to god I'm like 13 yrs old at heart)

    Guys, a quick note on crossfit. I personally don't care for it, mostly because the people who run it are like a cult. If it's your workout of choice, enjoy. But keep in mind you WILL NOT be doing Olympic lifts or any of the other stuff you see them do on youtube. You WILL be doing plenty of running and a lot of low weight, high rep workouts. You might want to stick to that. Also, crossfit has a tendency to hurt you and the last thing you want is to get an academy date and not be able to go because you hurt yourself doing the latest workout fad.

    zachryw2001 where ya staying?

    Also I'd say Central Park and Natural History Museum are obvious good choices. I can attest to the awesomeness of S'mac and the Peanut Butter Company. Used to work that area as a medic, both are awesome places to eat.

    For mexican... my favorite places in Manhattan are actually a taco truck company, and some small no frills places.

    The trucks are Tacos el Idolo, and are usually located at W14th/8th Ave, Washington Pl/6th Ave, and St Marks Pl/3rd Ave. http://newyorkstreetfood.com/tag/el-idolo-taco-truck/

    Then there's Oaxaca Taqueria and they have 2 spots in Manhattan, both in the village. http://oaxacatacos.com/

    Another place I really like that is in the East Village is Paquito's: http://www.yelp.com/biz/paquitos-restaurant-new-york-5

    If you feel down for a burger Shake Shack is a standard destination, and while I find it to be a bit overhyped, their burgers and fries are very good, and there's now a number of locations.

    If you do a day downtown at the WTC you could also ham it up as a tourist and stop by 10 house, since it's RIGHT there. That's also very close to Battery Park, which is always nice, and the South Street Seaport, which is a bit kitscy but still a neat place. Other options down there are to stop by the NY Fire Museum on Spring St, or the NY Fire Store on Greenwich Ave. Even though the Fire Store isn't affiliated with the city, it's family owned and they're very nice people.

    Unfortunately, as you can probably tell, years of working and going out in lower Manhattan has made that my area of expertise.

    Without getting into a ****ing match with you I just want to say that your wrong. Olympic lifts build explosiveness and power and are much more efficient than any other weight training. Which would allow someone to motor thru any high rep workout considering the Olympic lifts are separated from the metabolic conditioning aspect of most crossfit workouts they are done separately. Also that's a general statement about injury any exercise program done improperly or recklessly will eventually lead to an injury. And it is definitely not a fad it has been around for a while and unlike Taebo or 8 minute abs (fads) I would say it has a much more proven track record. But I will agree with you on one thing Totally a Cult.

    Overheard an instructor talking at the rock...

    Should the current class keep up its academic pace(which will mean many getting failed out academically) that there will only be something around 150 guys or less graduating. As such the Dept is trying to get the city to sign off on putting another class in right after this one graduates in may that will only include the rest of EMS and possibly some pHs.

    Sucks

    No shouting match necessary. But I'm not wrong. You WILL NOT touch a weight heavier than 10 lbs at the Rock. You certainly will not perform any sort of Olympic lifts. It isn't that these aren't good things to do; it's that the workout at the Rock is its own thing entirely. My humble advice is to stick to that one thing. You will note someone on here admits to not doing as well on the situp test because he was too used to doing things the cross fit way.

    As far as injury, you have a significantly less chance of hurting yourself with a 10 lbs dumbbell than you do tossing a barbell with 45 lbs plates on it over your head. The cult thing is scary, though. People who do this workout are absolutely astonished that not everybody likes it. It is indeed a fad, designed to get your money from your pocket. Pick three or four exercises, do them in order at high speed with poor form, and you have crossfit. No need to pay anybody for that. But do as you will.
