Lizzy's Manhattan Reflection

My daughter, Lizzy, was born in Manhattan and has never fully forgiven my wife and me for moving in 2002. Not only that, but she continues to describe herself as “a New Yorker” even though we’ve relocated to California. (And who can blame her for retaining that moniker?) The question came up recently of what she actually remembers about New York City since she only lived there for her first five years. Lizzy’s reply was decisive and compelling: “I remember it well. Everyday, I would wake up and look outside, and I’d see walkers walking, taxis taxing, and New Yorkers newyorking.”
