    Today is the big Caribbean Day parade in NY!

    I've been before (I'm Guyanese) and I noticed that everyone there is black and there were bearly any brown people lol. Not saying that as a bad thing or anything. The parade is pretty crazy but I mean that mostly in a good way. It's really nice to see Bill de Blasio (love that...

    I'll be in town next Friday to visit some

    friends. I'm also "surveying the land" for a potential move there. I'd love to meet some new people and maybe grab drinks. Inbox me.

    when I moved to new York I always felt alone.

    going to Manhattan and being a young handsome Caucasian warranted the attention of absolutely nobody. I hate that ******* place. I worked at a place and watched rich people take elevators. what SCU!bags.

    I'm a Southerner who travelled to Albany once.

    I absolutely loved it. My favorite part about the trip was when I was checking out at the grocery store. It was a 10 items or less line. A man with a full buggy tried to go down it and the cashier told him that it was 10 items or less. The man replied, "Well, good for you...

    I visited new york for 5 days recently. I'm absolutely in love with it. The touristy stuff doesn't appeal to me-- I'm mostly interested in the way that people conduct themselves in public. It's completely different from my small town in Georgia. It's more open. Public and private...

    New York City is where it is.

    Always something to do at any time. New faces almost every time. I lived here my whole life and wouldn't change it for the world. There's no place like home.

    I've lived all over this town-usually in

    neighborhoods just before they become all the rage. My favorite was TriBeCa in the late 70's early 80's when life was all about punk rock, political art and never going above 14th Street.
