Mayor Michael Bloomberg, in his last term as New York City’s leader, waxes poetic.
"New York City is the only place where you can nosh on a bagel for breakfast, grab a falafel for lunch, feast on pho for dinner, enjoy zeppole for dessert and grab a slice of pizza at 4 a.m.—all on the same block!
It’s the only place where you can ride the Staten Island Ferry, see The Public Theater’s Shakespeare in the Park and listen to concerts at the Prospect Park Bandshell—all for the same price (free!).
It’s the only place where you can watch the Yankees play in the Bronx, the Rangers play in Manhattan and the Nets play in Brooklyn—all by the same subway (the B train, of course).
And it’s the only place to be if you want to experience the most electric and diverse city in the world.”
