The New York portion of the trip is rapidly coming to a close and, as I sit here and reflect on the past 7 weeks, I already know what I'm going to miss most about this city. The jaywalking. Such a simple pleasure really. Not only is jaywalking acceptable out here, it's practically encouraged; people will all but push other folks off the curb if they're being held up. Why do I feel like I'm going to either get a ticket or run over when I get back to California?
