You know you are in New York when:
"What's your plans now?" My cousin asked me, as I freshened up after the 10 hour trip.
"I think I will head over to the subway station and grab a man." I said. "I want to see where the attractions are and how to get there."
"Um," My cousin bites her lip. "It's 9 pm."
"So?" I don't comprehend.
"I wouldn't recommend going to the subway after 9."
You know you have reached New York when:
You see the first coloured face in 8 hours.
Indicator lights to change lanes are not obligatory, it appears.
Every other car is banged up.
I encounter my first Hispanic person in 8 years.
So far the people appear to speak English, but I am still in Jackson Heights. Already someone has tried to sell me an used phone card.
Yes, it's exactly as I remember.
