I recently got back from a trip to New York. I know this is not the most insightful or ground breaking comment ever made, but New York is an incredible city.
There are now three cities I have been to in my travels that I have arrived in and immediately said, "I could live here."
1. Vancouver, BC (my hometown, so I'm not sure if that counts)
2. Paris, France
3. New York, New York
This flag was hung above the couch at a bonfire/house party I went to in Brooklyn. I know it's not a particularly engaging photo, but I decided to post it for two reasons:
1. This is a phenomenon you don't see in Canada. I don't know a single recently graduated college student with a Canadian flag in their living room. In fact, I don't think I know a single person who owns a Canadian flag (a real flag- not one of those paper ones). Overt patriotism like you see in America always catches my attention.
2. It reminds me of Jasper Johns', Flag, (1954-55).
