We don't know how much longer the Starwood Amex will be available. So while it works for short range planning, not necessarily for long range.

The Frick is amazing. It's also my favorite art museum here in the city.

Another personal favorite, if it interests you, is the New York Transit Museum in Brooklyn: http://www.nytransitmuseum.org

The key issue, IMO, is not "overbuilding" the stations. Yes, extra features cost more. The real issue to me is the unanswered question, "why are subway construction costs so high in New York?"

Unless you have other cards open that are as old, I'd convert to the Everyday. Use it once every six months on anything. A 2.7% FTF is next to nothing on a $1.00 purchase.

If an airline card offers free checked baggage regardless of payment method, then a card can pay for itself depending on a person's travel patterns.

I'd also rather that Amex put their money to improved rewards or purchase protection and insurance.
