Travel Tip of the week - when you're traveling, avoid taking pictures with characters in Times Square. There are very aggressive people trying to get you to pay them for a picture. They're very in your face. So it's best to avoid it altogether. Also, prices for taking a PediCab can be more than you think. Often up to $7 a minute. So make sure you know upfront how much it's going to be.
