This is going to be my last post about our trip to New York City. We had a lot of fun, and we can’t wait to go back and explore more of the city and see what we missed. I wanted to use this last post to talk about some of the observations that we made while we were there.
We noticed two terms that they use in New York City that mean something else in Wisconsin. The first was Shirley Temple. My husband and I went out to dinner one night and I had asked for a kitty cocktail. The server looked at me like a deer in headlights. Eventually, we got on the same page.
The other one is milk. They use it instead of creamer for coffee. I was asked several times if I wanted milk. And I said yes because I needed something to cut the strangeness of the coffee.
Speaking of coffee, New Yorkers don’t seem to like their coffee to be sweet. I ordered a mocha from a food truck, thinking it would be sweet. Yeah, it wasn’t. It was still good, it just wasn’t the taste I was expecting it to be.
Fountains and Statues
I feel like everywhere I looked there was either a fountain or a statue. And I loved it. There isn’t a lot of that where I live, so it’s fun to look at them when I do get to see them.
The people there were super nice. We didn’t meet one rude New Yorker. And we were pleasantly surprised. They rivaled the midwest nice.
That being said, they don’t tolerate being dumb. So if you’re not paying attention you will get honked at.
That was it for our travels in New York City. If you missed any, click here to start from the beginning.
