New Yorkers,,,Yea!!

Jump to last reply

I shared in the lounge in Dec about 2 instances where people did a kindness towards me. I also shared the stories to my email contacts, so my son just sent me his story.

He lives in Inwood, upper Manhattan around 205th st. and Broadway. As he was digging his car out a city plow honks at him from across the street. They turn around and plow as close to his car as they could to help him out, then a man with a shovel helps him for a half hour to finish up the job. Son wanted to know where he lived so he could drop off a bottle of wine but the stranger declined and just hurried off to move his car where the meter was running out.

I truly don't know where the impression of cold, uncaring New Yorkers comes from. I am not that old, but whenever I visit son and take subway downtown, I am always offered a seat. Anyway, for those of you planning to visit, don't be afraid, New Yorkers are truly nice folks.

Karen
