What is your perfect day in NYC? Today the weather was bright and sunny and not too hot. It doesn’t get any better than this!
What is the best thing about NYC? People watching and pizza!
What is the worst? It used to be the crime, but now the real crime is how much everything costs. It just costs a fortune to live here!
What would be surprising about NYC to an outsider? How crowded it is and how safe it has become.
If your city was a person or character who would it be? It might be Donald Trump. That’s why I prefer the old New York, it rolls with the punches.
