    I know I couldn't believe it.  There was only one day of taping that was available for while we are there and we got it >dance< so yeah we also picked up the New York Pass and are super stoked to have our own little "Amazing Race New York" 😉

    Sounds like a great trip!  I, too, have no suggestions for apps, but I do look forward to hearing how the nexus helped you enjoy your trip.  I just took mine to a conference and LOVED having it on hand in sessions.  I mostly used it to hand write notes with a stylus, but having it as a super-sized PDA for things like email and calendar were great, too.   (Of course, the bluetooth keyboard I ordered came after I left town, but I've been enjoying that today in meetings at work.)

    I'm really hopping we can use it as our map.  I've loaded trip advisor since it has a compass to help point us in the right direction 🙂  

    I know I need connection for subway stuff, so I hope my hotspot works okay out there.

    I thought I had seen an app that used the camera to do some augmented reality but I can't find it 😛
