New York City Resident

Write about how you’re a typical resident of your city or town… or about how you’re different from most people there.

I’m not a typical New York City Resident in and of the fact that I’m not human. I live in a world where the supernatural exists. I am one of such beings. I live in a very restricted community and while we are part of the City as a whole, we live by different rules – go to different schools and just aren’t typical.

But I grew up in New York City. I love the fast pace. I don’t own a car – I don’t want to own a car. I love that there is a Starbucks on every corner, and a pizza joint to. I can get anywhere in the City by train or bus or walking and I know where not to go to get caught up in the tourists. In this sense I’m exactly like a typical resident of New York City.

I was right there with the rest of NYC when the Twin Towers fell. We were right there picking up the pieces – helping to restore our beautiful city. I wasn’t more than a teenager then but I remember it well. And thanks to it my fear of flying was that much more confirmed.

I’ve been to nearly every Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. I’ve attended a few ball drops on New Years Eve. I’ve run amok in FAO Schwarts. I love Little Italy and Chinatown. New York City is part of me and I’ll protect my city from the supernatural crazies. That is my job and I will carry it out.
