What's the best way to get across midtown Manhattan by bicycle? Looking at bike maps of the city, it seems there's no bike lanes going East-West between the lower 20s and wayy up in 90th St (on the east side) and 77th St (on the west side) Assuming I want to get across town by travelling in the 50s (or reasonably close to that), which street(s) should I take for the safest, least traffic-rife ride?
I'm having birthday drinks in a few weeks and am looking for a lower Manhattan bar that tends to attract a crowd of people in their mid-20s and older. I'm not interested in dive bars, extremely upscale bars or bars with DJs/musical acts. Just a relaxed venue for me and my friends to spend a few hours on a Saturday night. Ideally, the bar should be below 14th St. Any suggestions?

I would rather buy a set of 2009 New York BAR/BRI books on eBay than take the course this summer. I know people attempt this -- there is a burgeoning second-hand market for the materials on eBay. Are these people savvy, or are they suckers? Leaving aside the intangible benefits of being with the herd, my question is this: can a well-disciplined 3L pass the New York bar with only the physical BAR/BRI materials and study schedule, sans the taped lectures and bad karma from the lecture hall?
