Good. Really very good. NYC to me is like 1000 small town main streets with no trees between them. Friendly, safe in the East Village anyway. Reasonable market economy for food and such. People ask you for directions just like a small town too. School is great, very professional and supportive. I met the original Village People cowboy on a public access game show and he was cool. Eric W. took me to Cirque du Soleil for free since his wife couldn’t make it. Got back stage and met the director and some staff. It’s like a not-so-small army with a school, kitchen, doctors, etc. That basically overwhelmed me on the beautiful people watching front. As a friend told me, you’ve got to literally dodge the beautiful poeple in the streets of NYC.
