New York Stories

Living in New York is different from living anywhere else in America.

We walk to a bodega or deli for lunch instead of driving to a chain restaurant or strip mall. We all know what bodega means, and we don’t question that we’re calling a Korean-owned store by a Spanish name. Once we’re there, we are perfectly likely to pick up a tray of sushi and a bowl of matzoh ball soup and sit down with a stranger eating a knish.

This section of Viveca’s Vanity Site is dedicated to stories about life in this strange and wonderful city.
