Some cities are known primarily for either their personality, their food, their weather, or their architecture. New York's distinguishing characteristic is simply its size. Times SquareBefore you say anything else, you dumbly observe that it's just  big in every way - the area it covers, the heights of its skyscrapers, the number of restaurants and theaters, the conglomeration of global cultures.  Arguably, no one characteristic sets New York City apart from other major cities as much as its sheer size. After my first trip to the Big Apple, that's the easiest summary I can make. The rest of the site goes into a little more detail.  06/01

I lived at Columbia University and worked as an intern at Sports Illustrated for Kids in Manhattan during the summer of 2001.
