New, 81 comments

And slow walkers aren't mowed down on the sidewalk! But I'm what you might call a bona fide Manhattanite. Or, to be more precise, a bona fide Upper East Sider. I've traveled the world, I said to myself—how exotic could Brooklyn really be?" Disclaimer: We're not quite sure this story isn't a belated April Fool's gag. [VF]
