So here’s my list of places to see in DC and New York. Some are walk-bys, and in a total of six days we won’t cover but a fraction of the list in any meaningful way; but if there’s a “can’t miss” place I haven’t listed, please share. (I’ve been to NYC many times, but mostly not for a long time, and lived in DC when I was in law school. New experiences for my daughter, though.)
No food and drink on the list yet. Suggestions welcomed. (We’re definitely facing the choice paradox, for their are too many options for the limited number of days.) In particular, we will be doing sushi once in each city, so if you’ve got a favorite I’m listening.
