Movies with popcorn and bagels with cream cheese, morning newspapers and coffee with soy milk, girls in short dresses and very high heels, shopping at The Strand and getting great deals. When the sirens blare, when the dogs crap, when I’m feeling sad, I simply remember my favorite New York things and then I don’t feeeeeeeeeel so bad.
Things I’m Gonna Miss
Broadway plays and musicals
Having EVERYTHING I need within a five mile radius of where I live
The option of having 90% of the things I need delivered to my apartment
Art House movies
Art House movie popcorn
Katz’s corned beef sandwiches. I only have them like twice a year, but it brings me comfort knowing they’re near by if I need them
Hanging out in the East Village
Hanging out in the West Village
Talking really fast
The beautiful diversity of NYC
People who know how to bring the funny!
Things I Say Good Riddance To ( At Least For Now)
Cashiers who ignore you when you say thank you
Tourists walking four across through Times Square
Random hideous smells that offend my nasal passages
Speed demon Chinese delivery dudes on bikes
Small apartments with big price tags
I would miss the randomness of NYC. Like wandering around the Lower East Side and randomly finding a fabulous, comfortable restaurant to have dinner with great friends!
I completely agree Andrew that’s a really important one that I missed!!!
Love this one:
“The option of having 90% of the things I need delivered to my apartment”
How about hanging with your mates at the Standard Hotel Biergarten on a nice sunny evening in April ?
