In my story I have my mc who was raised in England and basically moves to New Your City and I don’t want to miss represent New York/Americans (I’m not American). If you know a bit about New York or live in New York, I would be very grateful if you could share your experience in/info on the city.
I’m not asking for a big chunk of writing. Maybe some 1 or 2 fun fact from one person?
Here are some things I would like specifically but anything would be good.
- any phrases that only New Yorkers know that would have to be explained to an outsider
- any experiences about having a job at aged 20 - 30
- daily life routine
- school (especially the ages of which school)
- Or even better about moving to a new country?
I think @aria_writes might be from New York?
sure! I think I can help w this.

What’s good?- how are you?

I know from past friends that New Yorkers tend to walk a lot and there’s a running joke that these guys consider it’s okay to walk 40 minutes or more.
Thank you!! I really appreciate it!!
