There is one thing that people do everyday regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or anything else for that matter; People are always eating… especially in New York City. Each day, you can see people in line for halal food at the street cart, picking up some breakfast at one of the million Dunkin Donuts, or making their way to a much-needed lunch break. I have done all of the above, much to my wallet’s dismay.
Food, to me, is not only to nourish oneself, but it’s also a way to connect with other people. I mean, think about it. What’s the first thing you think of when I say Thanksgiving? Turkey, right? How about birthday? Was it cake? I don’t know about everyone else, but having food at a gathering makes 1. everyone more excited to be there, and 2. the event more memorable. Take a college campus, for example. Nothing gets people together faster than someone shouting “free pizza in the quad!”
With that being said, I invite you to take a peek into my NYC memories all revolving around, you guessed it, food.
And in case you were wondering, yes. It is very difficult to keep in such wonderful shape. 🙂
