What do you love about New York?

1. I like to go to Katz’s Deli because it’s the queen of pastrami.

2. I love to go to Smorgasburg [a Brooklyn Flea food market] because I get to take a boat over there and see all of the interesting artisans in town.

3. And I love to go to the New York Botanical Gardens because they represent the promise. It’s a fabulous place. They have a kitchen garden out there. They do really interesting demonstrations so people understand where their food comes from. And it’s also where beauty comes from.
