    I'll give you a tour. I had severe PTSD after 9/11, so I forced myself to go downtown as often as I could; meaning that I could work as a tour guide :-)

    And It really is an amazing place. Downtown New York is where the whole American story started.

    Fuck me, it's a leprechaun.

    •  Desensitising... yes that's apparently a good cure (5+ / 0-)

      ...for PTSD. Many people were traumatised by 9/11. I knew a New Yorker who threw himself under a metro train (and survived). A close friend of mine who - half Indian and half Spanish - was constantly identified as a 'Muslim' had a severe two year breakdown.

      I'd be honoured to have you as a guide. The mother of my Polish significant other lives in NYC, so no doubt I'll be back soon.

      And if you're ever in London...
