Biking in the city is the best. All these new bike lanes are awesome but I feel bad for the new wave of NYC cyclists who are gonna miss out on the art of the rush hour bob and weave.
I'm a vegan but most new friends are surprised to find that out about me, which I take as a compliment. I have vegan friends, I have meat-eating friends. Awesome if you're a vegan. Okay if you're not, too. I love vegan and vegetarian restaurants, but I usually eat at non-vegetarian ones. Thai, Ethiopian, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Mediterranean. As long as there's a decent vegan option on the menu, I'm cool.
I'm also involved in the Black Lives Matter movement. If you can't get behind that, we most definitely will not work out. And you're racist.
I'm a licensed New York City tour guide and give walking tours of the city through a private company as well as through the awesome Municipal Art Society, the group who saved Grand Central Terminal in the '70s from meeting the same fate as the original Pennsylvania Station.
I'm studying ASL for no reason other than to learn a new, beautiful language.
I studied improv at UCB for years and still perform monthly with my 6-year-old improv team. I was a "street artist" for a brief period then this happened: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOWa0JsHH6M
I love contemporary art and hit the MoMA, Whitney, and Brooklyn Museum pretty regularly. Some all time faves are Hank Willis Thomas, Swoon, Kehinde Wiley, Keith Haring, Emory Douglas, and Banksy. Also really love Storm King and Dia Beacon.
