After making traffic in Washington DC even more of a nightmare than usual for the past couple of days, Cool Pope Francis is finally bringing his Fiat to the streets of New York City before inexplicably wrapping up his trip to the United States in Philadelphia.
I went to take a look at the pope's itinerary so I could be sure to avoid the madness that will surely follow him everywhere he goes. While you can tell he's put some planning into his trip, I'm a little concerned he's not going to experience the city the way you're supposed to.
He might be saying Mass at Madison Square Garden and speaking in front of the United Nations, but what about the other things tourists do when they get the chance to visit the Big Apple? A private motorcade through Central Park is nice, but I'd rather take a horse-drawn carriage.
To help His Holiness out, I compiled the things he should do to get the true New York City experience. He could also just skip his trip to Philly entirely and take a couple of days to complete this list instead.
