I Heart New York

Empire State from the Metro Hotel

Dear New York,

Everyone knows that I love older women, so it was great to see you again!

You, of course, were looking great! But I gotta tell you, although many of your streets were looking cleaner than the last time I saw you, you're showing your age, old girl.

Still, the big surprise was how much friendlier you've gotten over the years. Everywhere I went, your no-nonsense New Yorkers were more courteous, and one young man even called me, "Sir." (Am I, too, getting old?--don't say it!)

It was a short and sweet vacation, and I'm back in Miami in balmy weather. But it was good to see you again.

And despite everything, you still have a place in my heart.
