Much as I like my penthouse suite – did you see my dining room and dressing room:
I noticed the debit had come through on my credit card for two night’s accommodation and the Australian dollar has fallen so low compared to the $US that I can’t justify staying here for the remainder of my time in New York. After all I did come here as a homeless waif in the middle of the night.
I am moving to Times Square or more properly Hells Kitchen. Goodbye Bergdorf’s and hello bodegas and external fire escapes.
Of course it’s not too downmarket but it is a much higher room away from much of the street noise.
