Independence Day is coming up and it’s that time of the year when New Yorkers venture out of their respective boroughs to see the world – or just the Hamptons for the least curious. They will be back on their City grind right on time for Labor Day, telling their friends all the fun they had discovering a new culture, a new cuisine and new people. But here are 15 questions that all New Yorkers – including me – will ask while traveling abroad or to unknown territories this summer:
#1 What do you mean there is no Wifi?
#2 What about a Starbucks then? No?
#3 Is the AC broken?
#4 No cabs? But how do you get around?
#5 Is Sunday some sort of special here because everything seems to be closed?
#6 Why are people so slow?
#7 Would you mind taking a selfie with me?
#8 Are you sure this is the right address because I don’t see any cross street?
#9 Is the TV working because I can’t find the local version of Real Housewives?
#10 Where is the nearest bodega?
#11 Is this gluten-free?
#12 Why is the wine so cheap?
#13 How can you not have any vegan option on your menu?
#14 How hard is it to find a decent juice bar up in here?
#15 Oh my God, I’m so over New York, should I move here?
