Can't find what you are looking for ?

Saturday, April 5, 2008


- You say "the city" and expect everyone to know that this means Manhattan.

- You have never been to the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building.

- The subway makes sense to you, and the subway should never be called anything like the Metro.

- Your door has more than three locks and is made of steel.

- You think Central Park is "nature."

- You pay more each month to park your car than most people in the US pay on their mortgage.

- You haven't seen more than 12 stars in the night sky since you went away to camp as a kid.

- You pay $5 without blinking for a beer that cost the bar 28 cents.

- You have 27 different take-out menus next to your telephone.

- Going to Brooklyn is considered a "road trip." Of course, you only go there to attend weddings or funerals.

- America west of the Hudson is still theoretical to you.

- You have jaywalking down to an art form. You're born with it.

- You take a taxi to get to your health club to exercise.

- You don't hear sirens anymore.

- You live in a building with a larger population than most American towns.
