“I love New York…” - Anthony Bourdain
LONG ISLAND CITY, QUEENS, NY - 2018: I love travel. I love going to the farthest and most extreme spots. I’m never disappointed in far away, but the New York episodes of #PartsUnknown were always the most surprising to me. I always learned the most about the city that I live in. The city is at times both vast and Lilliputian, but most of all it is accessible to me. Every morning I can walk out the door and explore as far as my feet will take me, or hop on a bus, the subway, #lyft, a #citibike or water taxi and the city has an abundance of not so obvious gems to discover. I’ve been here a decade and I’m just getting started figuring it out.
Tony said “I love New York. I’m a guy for whom a New York accent is a comforting thing.” I’m not there yet. A southern twang or a redneck mumble still makes me feel most at home, but NYC is mine now, it’s where my son was born and where I live so I plan on knowing it better than I know anywhere on earth.
