I Heart NY

This isn’t the first time I’ve posted to profess my love for New York and it most definitely won’t be the last. As I watch a syndicated episode of Sex and the City that I have watched a dozen times before, I can’t help but think about how much I love the romanticized version of a New Yorker. In the episode of Sex and the City I was watching there was the typical girl talk over brunch when the girls ask Carrie:

o-SEX-AND-THE-CITY-570“What’d you do last night?” and Carrie replies:

“I had a good ole fashioned date with New York City”

Charlotte inquires ever so naively: “You’re not afraid to go out alone on date night?” Carrie retorts: “I wasn’t alone — I have the city.”

The witty banter commences with Miranda: “you’re dating the city?”

Carrie: “For about 18 years now; I think we’re in love.”

I love this episode — mainly because of the witty banter and corny puns, but also because it shows off Carrie’s love affair with NYC. I too feel this way about NYC. Though, I’m not a native New Yorker, I’d like to think I get New Yorkers and have often considered the possibility of becoming a New Yorker one day. Some days I feel like I was born on the wrong coast and that I would fit in better in NYC. Here are some reasons why:

1. I love the idea of a bagel and a coffee from the same shop in my neighborhood every morning before I take the subway to work in the city.


2. Being alone re-charges me and I frequently enjoy doing things solo.

3. A fast-paced lifestyle doesn’t overwhelm me.


4. The ability to get El Salvadorian food, visit the Turkish Market, and get a slice on the same block is absolutely wonderful to me.


5. Walking is my preferred mode of transport.


6. New Yorkers give it to you straight.


7. I want to be able to go to a museum, broadway show, or a talk at NYU in a spur of the moment fashion.


8. I can’t get over the skyline.


9. Old fashioned romance will always be associated with NYC: An Affair to Remember, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Barefoot in the Park.


10. NY reminds me of family, and that makes me feel at home.

So, yeah I guess you could say me and NYC are getting pretty serious.
