I hate arbitrary email chain letters that that ask you to send to all your friends a list of 29 things or whatever, such as your “favorite TV show,” “best vacation,” etc.
But I often have a running mental list of things I like about New York, besides the subways, ethnic food and culture. This mental list is useful when I am crammed in thick on the train, surrounded by people who are all taller and smellier than me, or trudging down Broadway in Astoria in yet another windy rainstorm:
– It’s a dog’s town (ex. : this)
– It’s a coffee lovers town.
– People like to swear.
– People like to complain.
– More people wear jeans to work than anything else. And adults carry backpacks.
– There’s a bar(s) on every corner.
