What do you love about New York?

1. I love going to Jack’s Coffee and getting a regular brewed coffee. The coffee’s phenomenal. My favorite thing to do in New York is just to walk. From the time I moved here 22 years ago until now, I love to get a coffee and walk around this beautiful city. I talk to people, look in windows, go into shops, go into museums. I thought after 22 years I might get bored at some point, and my love affair’s only grown stronger.

2. And I always have to go to places like the King Cole Bar in the St. Regis or go to historical landmarks and just watch people. I’ll order a cranberry and soda and eat the bar snacks and just watch people. The King Cole Bar is just so emblematic of classic New York. I like to go to any place, basically, that’s been shown in a Woody Allen film.

3. I’ll walk around Central Park South and the Guggenheim. Got to go to the Met once in a while, just sit on the front steps and, there are so many things. The Statue of Liberty, I get a pretzel, and I just walk with my kids and I’m happy.
