About LOCALIKE New York
"The true New Yorker secretly believes that people living anywhere else have to be, in some sense, kidding." – John Updike
People who knew New York only from the tourist perspective might think the great American writer was exaggerating; they might even think he was biased. Both these suspicions are unfair to the two-time Pulitzer Prize winner.
But anyone who looks beyond the New York skyline will understand. If you immerse yourself in the city and open yourself up to it, if you have an ear for the notes between the notes and an eye for the highlights far from the neon dazzle of Times Square, you'll see the undeniable logic in this statement. And will agree with a smile.
New York isn't a city. It's an outlook on life. The city is a pulsating microcosm of colors, shapes, and scents, a creative nucleus, fast and loud and full of life. It's a place where people of all ethnicities and religions are united by a shared belief in what they self-confidently call "The City." This local pride is a hallmark of New Yorkers, and their flamboyant energy makes New York the most exciting city in the world.
