Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

After the demise of the Quotes and Recipes of the week, I am starting a new weekly post, focusing on a specific place in the world every week. The first place is The Big Apple- New York City. New York has the largest population of any city in the United States, and the 13th most populous city in the world.

New York is famous from everything to it's food to, more recently, it's Wall Street failures. The city has a newspaper that is world famous, the New York Times. One thing almost everybody has heard about is Broadway. Did you know that Broadway is actually 39 very large theaters located along or very close to Broadway street in New York?

Have you ever been to New York? Do you have anything interesting to offer the conversation? What is your favorite thing to do in big cities?

Side Note: I, like Chloe, need a cool name.  I don't like Oh, The Places You'll Go! It would be nice if it were 2 or 3 words. Any ideas?

Another Note: The map below will ave more lines added to it as we 'travel' more places. I set it up on Travellerspoint. There are 2 reasons for this; I won't remember where I've 'visited' unless I have some way to track it and it's kind of a cool visual.

In 2006, then-editor Steve Smith of The Spokesman-Review had the idea of starting a publication for an often forgotten audience: teenagers. The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at
