What do you love about New York?

1. There are too many things about the city that I love. I love all the free stuff.

2. And Isaboo [her dog] loves the ‘squirrel zoo.’ That is what we call Washington Square Park. She likes to sit and contemplate the squirrels. She doesn’t chase them. She doesn’t want to eat them. She just wants to watch them.

3. I love walking over the Brooklyn Bridge. The Brooklyn Bridge is so meaningful to me in so many ways. You get to the other side in Brooklyn and there’s so much great food. But it’s such a statement about what New York is. Gutsy hard work built that thing. I just think it’s such a feat of engineering. It took so much love and effort and stress and strain. And I picture all the guys eating out of a lunch box. All the generations it took to build it. It’s so overwhelming and on the bridge are people with kids and bicycles and it’s such a great breathing, living thing. It’s awesome.
