I'm a Brit who's never tried Maple Syrup. Canadians tell me I don't know what I'm missing. Brits who have tried it tell me it's way too sweet.

New York Harbor: View from a Tugboat

PHeymont ·
  As travelers, we like to poke around in cities and look for the less-seen sights—but it’s easy to forget we have them at home, too. New York from the water is an example. In this century, we New Yorkers tend to forget how important...
