I've been trying to get down to New York City more often lately. My goal has been once a month, and I think I'm actually managing about every 6 weeks. Normally I pick a neighborhood and explore it, including whatever museums/tourist sites are there.

My next visit has been planned for this Saturday for a while, but this time I'll be doing something a little less trivial.

I'll be attending the Unite Women NY march and rally in lower Manhattan.

From the site:
  • "On Saturday, April 28, 2012, women and men across the United States will converge in state capitols and cities to give voice to our opposition to the oppression of women’s access to health care and women’s rights. Politicians in Washington and in legislatures across the country have been trying, and in some cases succeeding, to legislate away the rights that women have fought for and won over 40 years ago. We will not let them turn back the calendar to the middle of the last century.
  • Join us as we march united against the war on women in New York City and celebrate the history of women in the United States. The march and rally will also provide a platform to honor national and local organizations struggling to support women and to advocate for equal rights as well as local and state government officials who stand with us in opposition to the current social agenda aimed at reducing women’s rights.
The national site: Unite Women

Trying to decide if I should do Readercon or the Clearwater Festival this year.

Admission is more for Clearwater, but food and shelter will be more at Readercon.
