    because after living in Atlanta for over 20 years -- longer than I've lived in any other city, including NY -- people I meet say "Hey, you're from New York!" They don't even ask, it's just assumed.

    My family and friends in NY think I have a southern accent. And I admit that when I go to visit, it's hard to shift up to the NY rhythm.

    I had the exact taxi incident when I got here, plus a jarring surprise that I couldn't buy beer on Sundays.

    It's not just a zip code, it's an attitude.
