2a. I'm also going to NYC in April and staying in the American Youth Hostel. Has anyone stayed there? Is it as creepy as I'm making it out to be in my head?
2b. What do I need to see/do while in NYC? My husband and our nerdy friends will be at a comic book convention, so I'll be alone most of the time. Would it be too dorky to check out all of the museums and things like that?
