Things I Like about NYC


...to be followed by a "Things I Hate about NYC" post. As for now, here is a short list of things I like, even love about New York:
  • People here are a lot nicer than they get credit for
  • EVERYTHING stays open later
  • Everyone can tell Im from California - I don't know why, but I dig that
  • The blocks are so short, I feel like I can walk everywhere
  • Soooo many cabs! You'd never have to call ahead for a cab just to wait an hour for some sweatpants wearin' slob to show up
  • Cabs that actually have reliable credit card payment methods other than some janky, works-only-sometimes box that looks like it was made by some dude who ordered parts out of a hobby magazine
  • Coffee for under a buck...think about it, when is that last time you saw that?
  • Although Im hesitant, streetfood thats more than just bacon-wrapped hot dogs
  • People, of all ages, seem to have pretty hip sneaker style - I have an inner sneaker geek in me, so I notice things like that
  • Most restaurants have these little tents around the doorway to prevent cold air from blowing in everytime the door opens

If it makes you feel better, my dad loves it, too. They also watch the other one with that guy where he fixes the restaurants.
