Off to New York: Some facts first I think!

Taking a wee trip to New York next month, and so was looking up some fun facts about the big apple:

  • Did you know…? There are 6,374.6 miles of streets in New York City.
  • Macy’s, the world’s largest store, covers 2.1 million square feet of space and stocks over 500,000 different items.
  • The New York Stock Exchange has an annual trading volume of $5.5 trillion.
  • Why Cabs Are Yellow? John Hertz, who founded the Yellow Cab Company in 1907, chose yellow because he had read a study conducted by the University of Chicago that indicated it was the easiest color to spot.

I will be looking for the pub, and Abercrombie n Fitch!
