A guy named Paul (nice guy) from San Diego was talking to my wife and I. I told him I live in New York.
His first response:
"Hey! I heard Whole Foods is there now. WOW!"
I was like (in my mind) "what the f&(*?"
Does this guy have any idea that there are 1000 different places in New York (at least Manhattan), perhaps on nearly every street corner, that are just as good (if not better) than Whole Foods and nearly none of them are chains? Organic whole food super-awesome yuppie marts are in abundance here, spilling out into every block!
A guy somewhere else in the forums is eager to get a Trader Joe's in his neighborhood. Trader Joe's? Nice, but please... America will never get it.
This really isn't bragging, but it's more just a release of something that I couldn't help but finally express. I never lived in New York until this year, but I have no doubt in my mind that this place just has EVERYTHING that I've ever valued as a lover of cities, to the 10th power. Who needs chains?
The above anecdote, of course, just being 1 tiny example.
