"New York is the greatest city in the world. Twenty blocks away, you're in Italy. Three more blocks, you're in China. You can actually go to Afghanistan. … You go to Spain. You're a citizen of the world in this city."

What do you love about New York?

1. New York is the greatest city in the world. Twenty blocks away, you’re in Italy. Three more blocks, you’re in China. You can actually go to Afghanistan. … You go to Spain. You’re a citizen of the world in this city.

2. I love Central Park and I’m in the park every day. I walk eight miles every day. I walk and walk. I go around the whole loop and then there’s a smaller loop that’s two miles. So I do the big loop and then the small loop, and it’s different every time. Over the years, you get to see and pass people who you’re on nodding terms with. Central Park changes every day; it’s kind of a ninth wonder of the world.
