My favorite thing to do in New York City?

Well, New York is my favorite city to run in, because I can go in any direction and find a new neighborhood or new street that I haven’t been on before.

So there’s that and the fact that my wife and I love getting coffee at Ninth Street Espresso in Chelsea market.

It’s just the best coffee ever.
