On a recent visit to New York, writer Will Self walked the 20 miles from JFK to his hotel in Manhattan...and this was after walking 26 miles to Heathrow to catch the plane to JFK. "There were not many pedestrians out at 11:30 in the morning, and dressed all in black and snapping pictures with a digital camera, Mr. Self was a sight sufficiently exotic that he was tailed for a while by a black S.U.V."
