NYC--Not the Place You've Heard About

March 1, 2011

I've been in the big bad city for a few months now, and I must congratulate myself.  I have not be mugged, assaulted or murdered.  Thus my well-intending family's fears have not been realized, not yet anyways. 

 

For non-native New Yorkers, moving to the city is a big deal people.  "Oh you're moving to New York, be careful." Or, "New York is a scary place.  Brave girl, I hope you're buying pepper spray." 

 

I don't know what everyone is so scared about, the people of New York are genuine and kind people.  Countless individuals have guided me on my misguided subway trips, a cash only newspaper stand gave me a water for free once he realized I was without cash, and yet another store clerk told me to take my rings off before I got mugged.  See folks, givers.
