    Skinny-dipping in New York: can't say we recommend it, but it looks like some people do:
    Daring Enough to Bare It All for a New York Swim
    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/18/nyregion/da...
    Technically speaking, skinny-dipping is illegal in the city, but that has not stopped swimmers from taking the risk and baring it all.

    Hello to all of our friends around the world!

    We wanted to clarify something about our alcohol policy since we've been seeing reviews on TripAdvisor that speak to the lack of alcohol within our facility.

    First off, we want to say that we pride ourselves on being an excellent resource for young travelers coming to New York for the first time, and we really do our best to make sure you're having a good time. A lot of consideration goes into the activities and services we provide, and we're always working to improve them. If you have any suggestions on activities, please don't hesitate to contact us at community.newyork@hiusa.org or send us a message on facebook up above.

    Serving alcohol within our premises is a very complicated matter, and we have to consider both our neighborhood community as well as the general safety and well-being of our guests. Securing a permit for serving alcohol is a delicate issue, and one that we're working to find an amenable solution to. However, this solution will likely not be available in the very near future.

    In the meantime, we try to offer many opportunities to entertain yourself as you see fit outside of the building. We offer at least one nightly outing to alcohol-serving establishments, and these are always guided by one of our staff or volunteers. In addition, we're more than happy to point you towards a number of fine establishments in the neighborhood. They're a great place to meet locals, and we have close relationships with many of them because of that.

    We take your feedback very seriously, and use it as the basis for improving our services all of the time. Unfortunately with some matters, the issue is more complicated and cannot be easily or quickly resolved. We hope you'll understand, and we can promise you'll have a good time anyway, and that we'll do everything in our power to make sure you do!

    You, our travelers, our family, our friends and our guests: every day you're carrying out our mission of bringing peace to the world through cultural exchange, through meals shared and experiences had together, through a couple of beers together or a walk through the city. Every single thing we do together is building stronger communities across borders, and creating peace one traveler at a time.

    Today's "heinous attacks" (in the words of President Obama) remind us how precious life is; how important it is to treasure one another and treat each other well. We can't tolerate this kind of violence, in our own countries and abroad.

    Our hearts go out to the families of those who were affected by today's attack. The acts were unconscionable, and the opportunity to carry out the attacks unacceptable. We're saddened: our hearts are solemn and our heads low. Let's continue working together to bring peace to everyone, so that these somber days be fewer and farther between.

    Hi all,

    We're lucky and we're ok. The old lady on the Upper West Side is high above ground, and we're fortunate.

    The rest of the city is in varying degrees of disrepair. Please take into account that full subway service will not be restored for 4 or 5 days according to Mayor Bloomberg.

    If you're interested in volunteering to help out while you're in town, please sign up here:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dG5JTldNeTRMTFhPTVFYWE1rYl9CWnc6MQ#gid=0

    Some of our staff will be volunteering around the city, so if you find yourself wanting to get out and clean up the city, sign up!

    Thanks to our community for all of your well wishes. You guys rock, and we're happy to serve you. We should have our schedule of in-house activities up and running ASAP, and our tours as well. Please bear with us as we get back up and running, to serve you as best we can.

    Thanks!

    Every year, Beloit College releases their list of facts about their incoming class of freshman (who are usually 17-18 years old). A lot of these were a shocker to me, for instance:

    -Justin Bieber would be a freshman this year. If he were going to college...
    -Robert De Niro is thought of as Greg Focker's long-suffering father-in-law, not as Vito Corleone or Jimmy Conway.
    -Gene therapy has always been an available treatment.
    -Pulp Fiction’s meal of a "Royale with Cheese" and an “Amos and Andy milkshake” has little or no resonance with them.

    Are there any others you found surprising?
