    NYC is the most awesome place on earth!

    I was talking to some friends yesterday about how Flushing has become predominantly Asian and how Hillside Avenue in Queens is so fascinating to drive down because you can see the stores turning from Afro-Carib cuisine places to Halal meat stores and how these vibrant neighborhoods have changed over time.

    A friend of mine just got an apartment in Woodside.  That area welcomed Irish immigrants 20 or 30 years ago and is now welcoming Asian immigrants.

    My Mom is Irish and my Dad was Hungarian.  They didn't move to Alabama or Kentucky to make their way in the world, they came to New York.

    I am eternally grateful for their choice!  NYC may have high taxes, but taxes are the price of civilization and our NYC civilization is awesome.
