NYC, the 1
In the city, you don't take the garbage out, you toss the trash bags across the sidewalk, the curbs are lined with armor, $350 fines for honking, people are friendly and will help you with directions, car has a "t" in the spelling (cart) some sort of hybrid of a granny walker and a shopping cart - used to carry anything that normally would go in your trunk, you cross the street when you feel like it, and you can pretty much get a bite to eat 24 hours of the day.
From 4-6 p.m. the light is beautiful- beaming in from the heavens slicing buildings in half like a wedge of cheese, burning throw tree leafs, illuminating cathedral towers, turning people school bus yellow, and finally dipping into the vents of the subway tunnels with a snap of cream twilight as it fades into the city lights.
