New York City is one place you can spend a week in and find yourself wanting more. Here are some interesting things to do and see.
The least expensive way to get from the airport into NYC is using the SUper Shuttle. You should contact them and arrange pick up prior to leaving for New York:
Take advantage of the New York City official website : http://www.nyc.gov Click on visitors information. You can find virtually any and all info on what to do in New York City on that website.
The Subway System in New York can get you virtually anywhere you want to go. Review the routs online, and ask for a map at any manned subway booth - it is really easy to get around if you use the maps. There are many buses in New York City as well, but the buses can seem exceedingly slow. Bus maps are available online as well.
A Metro Card will allow you to use the buses and subways. There are many types of cards available, as well as an unlimited one day pass. Read about them here: http://mta.info/metrocard/mcgtreng.htm#unlimited
There are two companies in New York City that offer Hop On Hop Off Double Decker Bus tours. These are tours where you can get on and off the buses as various locations to take advantage of sightseeing in many area of New York City.
City Sights NY: www.citysightsny.com Offers Downtown, Uptown & Night Tours.
Gray Line Bus Tours: http://www.coachusa.com/newyorksightseeing/ Offers uptown, downtown, Brooklyn, night tours and combination tours. On to the many classic "must sees" of New York:
The Empire State Building: http://www.esbny.com/index2.cfm Take advantage of the Sky Ride, a breathtaking view of New York City as seen through a helicopter.
The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island - http://www.circlelinedowntown.com/ Buy tickets online in advance to guarantee you will get in to visit the Statue. While tickets can be purchased at the Ferry itself, only a limited number of tickets are given out daily to visitors who want to access the inside of the Statue. If you purchase your tickets in advance, you will guarantee entrance to the Statue. Then take the ferry to Ellis Island for a tour of the place where millions of immigrants arrive in the U.S.
While you are on the website for tickets, you can also take a look at the Circle Line Ferry schedule for other areas - you can get a great "cruise" around Manhattan Island and see many interesting areas.

New York is home to many interesting museums - I can personally recommend many of the Art Museums as well as the Museum of Television and Radio, the Intrepid Museum and the Museum of Natural History: http://www.amnh.org/ http://www.nyc.gov/portal/index.jsp?epi_menuItemID=5344998baa00eff6a62fa24601c789a0&epi_menuID=b89ffdd82b13aff6a62fa24601c789a0&epi_baseMenuID=27579af732d48f86a62fa24601c789a0
No trip to New York is complete without visiting Times Square for tickets to a show! In the middle of Times Square is the famous TKTS booth, where you can purchase half price tickets for shows the day of the show. Read about the TKTS booth here: http://www.tdf.org/tkts/
If you don't see the shows you like available at the TKTS booth (many of the most popular shows aren't available at the Booth) on the day of the show, got o the theater box office - unsold tickets may be available.
If you know in advance what you'd like to see, go to Broadway.com to see if tickets are available in advance of arriving in New York: http://www.broadway.com/
Don't forget off Broadway Shows as well - great family shows are "Stomp" and "The Blue Man Group".

Go to Central Park, you can spend days there., There is also a small zoo in Central Park, the Central Park Zoo. Take a horse and buddy ride through and around the park.
Many talk shows are taped in New York City with free tickets available. Most of them you do need to request well in advance of your arrival, however, many shows have stand by lines detailed on their websites with info on how to obtain them.

$500,00 from a car accident in New York. Personal Injury lawsuit - An IBM employee got $500,000 for a car accident
A personal injury occurs when a person has suffered some form of injury, either physical or psychological, as the result of an accident or medical malpractice.
The most common type of personal injury claims are road traffic accidents, accidents at work, tripping accidents, assault claims, accidents in the home, defective product accidents and holiday accidents. Indeed, there are a multitude of types of accident and the term personal injury also incorporates medical and dental accidents (which lead to numerous medical and dental negligence claims every year) and conditions which are often classified as industrial disease cases. Industrial disease type cases include asbestosis and mesothelioma, chest diseases (e.g. emphysema, pneumoconiosis, silicosis, chronic bronchitis, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and chronic obstructive airways disease), vibration white finger, occupational deafness, occupational stress, contact dermititus, and repetitive strain injury cases.
Where the accident was the fault of someone else, the injured party may be entitled to monetary compensation from the person whose negligent conduct caused the injury. At least in the United States this system is complex and controversial with critics calling for various forms of tort reform. Attorneys often represent clients on a "contigency basis," in which the attorney does not charge for services until the case is resolved.
• This case was in Los Angeles California . A woman recovered $500,000 as a total settlement after a car accident. As an employee at Staples Center with a stellar record, she was forced to miss about one year of work off and on over 4 years. Given that she was a wage earner, the insurer agreed to pay $500,000 to settle the case.

Its finally here. March 15, 2008. Save that date.
HERES A VIDEO FROM THE FIRST MEETING OF THE TWO BOXERS:
The match on May 8, 2004 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas ended in a draw.Manny Pacquiao knocked down Juan Manuel Marquez three times in the first round. Referee Joe Cortez let the fight continue. The Pacquiao-Marquez scorecard reveals that judge Burt Clements scored the first round 10-7 instead of 10-6 as the other two judges did. Judge John Stewart had the fight 115-110 for Pacquiao. Guy Jutras 115-110 for Marquez. Clements 113-113 making it a draw. Pacquiao would have won the fight had Clements scored the 1st round 10-6.
Pacquiao vs Marquez II is scheduled to take place on March 15, 2008 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada. Manny "PacMan" Pacquiao will once again fight Juan Manuel Marquez four years after their historic fight in which Pacquiao knocked Marquez down three times in the first round only to have Juan Manuel Marquez come back and end up with a split draw.

A personal injury lawyer is a lawyer who provides legal representation to those who claim to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or other entity. Thus, personal injury lawyers tend to be especially knowledgeable and have more experience with regard to the area of law known as tort law, which includes civil wrongs and economic or non-economic damages to a person’s property, reputation, or rights.
They also handles work injuries, automobile and other accidents, defective products, medical mistakes, slip and fall accidents, and more.
How to find?
Most local bar associations have referral services in which the names of lawyers are available, arranged by legal specialty. There is a wide variation in the quality of lawyer referral services, however, even though they are supposed to be approved by the state bar association. Some lawyer referral services carefully screen attorneys and list only those attorneys with particular qualifications and a certain amount of past experience, while other services will list any attorney in good standing with the state bar who maintains liability insurance. Before you choose a lawyer referral service, ask what its qualifications are for including an attorney and how carefully lawyers are screened.
What you may not get from any lawyer referral service, however, is insight into the lawyer's philosophy -- for instance, whether the lawyer is willing to spend a few hours to be your legal coach or how aggressive the lawyer's personality is. Don't make a decision about a bar referral lawyer until you have met and interviewed him or her.

'Car accident and personal injury lawyer - get rich- find the best car accident and personal injury lawyer'
I was involved in a car accident last year of 2006 in New York City. It happened while I was on my vacation from work. My toyota was rear ended by a speeding car. The rear of my car was totally wreck. I was such in a bad shape physically and spiritually. I was so angry at the person who rear ended me, that I wanted to kill him for making my life in such a mess. First, I no longer have a car that gets me to work, I need to go to a physical therapist and all the paperwork that i have to furnish to the insurance company and my lawyer.
Thanks to a great lawyer from a law firm in lower Manhattan. I was able to get my car fix from Toyota and got $15,000 from my sufferings. My lawyers were able to get compensation for my injuries resulting from somebodies negligence. My lawyers only gets paid if the case is won or settled. These type of law firms also handles auto,bus,train,pedistrian,construction accidents, slips/trip/fall,lead paint poisoning, medical malpractice, defective products, wrongful death, general negligence, dental and nursing home negligence and etc. I have seen so many ads, im glad i didnt ignore them because those ads are for real. I can vouch for them because i am a client.
