On Visiting New York

Every person who visits NY has a home town where they are not a tourist. And they are all exceptionally brave to be visiting NYC. Please don’t forget that you live in an incredible city that is amazing to visit. And is visited by people who are also natives of a different place.
Remember what it’s like when a local is kind to you and does not treat you as a lesser human being because you are visiting their town. Remember that in NY. And the impressions you were left with through an act of kindness or a lack of kindness. People seem to forget how to treat others with humanity after being in the exact same situation themselves. You came to Italy. People come to New York. Leaving your home and what feels safe to you is an act of bravery to be celebrated.
