Olam, I simply stated my experience and conclusions drawn from it, I did not talk about my personal likes or dislikes in terms of flavour, styles nor venues. So I guess you can call it objective view of a subjective topic? I have never been good at identifying the line. Richie, I definitely agree with a lot that you are saying about the culture and heritage, and if I ever move to NYC for a living stint I would definitely indulge more. However, on this particular journey it was more about the social dancing aspect, or more specifically the On2 dancing aspect. So I stuck to the socials (those are listed in the article). The majority of people that I know would go to NYC for the same reason, so for those that are looking to walk the same type of path, this article documents what I experienced as well as what to expect.
