Toni: Oh geez. Haha. Well. Let's see... NYC is not as bad as some people claim it is. Honestly, if you're seeing it for the first time, I guess it can be a bit overwhelming, but really, it's not a big deal. There are waaaaaay too many misconceptions about people shooting each other all over the place. Doesn't happen, really. Haha. Um, towns in the boroughs are like any other towns, there's just more people crammed together. Manhattan is amazing....Yeah, NYC's amazing. Anything specific you want to know?
Ok. This was pretty helpful. I've been to New York a couple of times. The first time was cool, but the second time, we went there as tourists and it's hard to get a feel for a city if you're there are a tourist, you know? Haha I don't have images of people shooting one another nor do I particularly fear being mugged(there's probably a better chance of that happening at west campus in Austin, Tx ). I just love the city and I want to live there. And law school(possibly NYU) seems like a good idea. Only time will tell.
