Currently reading My First New York. Adapted from a New York Magazine cover story, various actors, artists, writers, political figures, comedians, and chefs share their first experiences of living in New York City from the 1930s to the present day. I’ve always played with the idea of moving to New York, even if only just for a year, just to have the experience and say I did it but I don’t know if a California girl like me could handle the Big Apple.
I was in New York for five days last summer and it was just enough time. Although I should ‘never say never.’
And I just love the back cover quote by Amy Sedaris: “The first thing I saw when I came to New York was a man leaning up against a wall, shitting. Perfect!”
