As for a few things I've learned about New York City:
- The essence of New York City is, apparently, waiting is horrifically long, chaotic lines.
- Customer service is not a top priority for most businesses here.
- I don't think I will ever get used to having to pop my ears because the elevator goes up just that high (I work on the 12th floor).
- Building numbers do not coincide with street numbers - a fact that I find quite frustrating.
- There are some really cute dogs up here.
- As much as we complain about the price of gas, taking the subway is way more expensive (It's $2.25 every time you get on the subway or a bus which would equate to driving about 15-20 miles in terms of gas prices, yet I rarely take the subway more than about 4 miles.).
- It is really easy to find a sandwich with brie in it here (!!).
In an attempt to end my rant of a post on a positive note, I would like to express the fact that I am indeed enjoying my internship, as well as the benefits it has to offer. As I hope you can tell from previous posts, I do take great pleasure in visiting the amazing museums that the city has to offer, made possible in part by my internship and its free-admission-to-any-museum-in-the-city(-except-the-Museum-of-Sex) benefit.
