Contributing editors for New York Magazine, Chris Smith and Amy Larocca, walk us through some of the "Reasons to Love New York" from the annual issue.
What happened this year that made you love New York?
i think the paltry sum of comments on this board speaks for itself. i am about ready to ditch the life with the craigslist roommate, the low paying job and the beautiful , rose-petal fresh smelling, subway stations of this city.
Random conversatins with literate strangers! My friend and I were walking down the street the other day talking about Laura Dern's show Enlightenment and an obscure novel that was somehow related. A stranger matched our stride for about a minute, chimed in on the novel and the show, then walked off.
Marriage Equality! My grandson's daddies got married on the first day they could, July 24th, under a rainbow chupah on Worth Street. The sweetest words I ever heard were, "...by the powers vested in me by the State of New York"!!! I Love New York!
