Nice New Yorkers

I think New Yorkers get a bad rap.  I was ready for the rude, prepared for the persnickety, and bracing for the brash ways of the stereotypical New Yorker.  But our encounters, thus far, have been in a word: pleasant!

We have been overwhelmed by the friendliness of New Yorkers.  I guess they love babies as much as everyone else.  Everywhere we go – restaurants, stores, parks, even the subway – we run into people who I’m pretty sure would otherwise walk right by us without making eye contact.  But when Anna Drake is with us, they stop.  And stop for a good long while.  Some reach out to touch her like this New Yorker in Lord & Taylor yesterday.  This makes the germaphobe in me shudder, but it makes my heart smile.
