My wife and I made a trip to New York City a few weeks ago and it was a wonderful opportunity to grab some great sound bites using my Sony PCM-D100 portable recorder. This little recorder is amazing! It's so easy keep it in a small pouch on my belt and whenever I hear something interesting it's always available. It was invaluable for the NYC trip. I recorded lots of different city ambiences and many are on sale now through my AudioJungle site.
