There are some of the grandfathered-in "virtual" geocaches in my area and I'm trying to figure out what the process is so I can log them with the iPhone app. I've looked at some of the explanations on the Geocaching site, but I'm still confused.

GeoCaching in NYC?

GeoCaching in NYC: I'm going to be visiting NYC for the weekend, and would love to do some GeoCaching while I'm there. I'm overwhelmed by the amount of caches on the website. Does anyone have specific caches that they've found that are worth recommending? Any areas to concentrate on? Areas to avoid? General NYC caching tips? This will be my first attempt at urban caching, I'm usually out in the woods.

Explaining Geocaching

So I am going to take a friend and his 9 year old Geocaching this Sunday. I am seeking a clear and quick explanation on how longitude, latitude, minutes and seconds work - in a way a nine year old would understand. Answers or good links?
