What Makes Someone A New Yorker?
I love hearing why other people love New York (or their own favorite city), especially when it's from someone I wouldn't expect. Like actress Kathy Najimy in New York Magazine:
What makes someone a New Yorker?
A rusty battery in their heart that never runs out? An insatiable unending current of desire to create and be astounded? An unwarranted excitement for spring clothes that people in normal-weathered places take for granted? A pull to stop and really listen to and appreciate the guy in front of the McDonald's in Times Square playing "Moonglow" on his sax? When they are hideously mean one moment and then the next they would give their life for you? That's a New Yorker.
