A Little Winded but A Wide Array of Opinion and Love for the City!
11 July 2011 | by SylSee all my reviews

You don't have to be born in New York City to become a New Yorker. The city can be both welcoming to tourists, transients, and the immigrants from abroad or from across the river. There is a feeling in New York City that can't be duplicated around the world. Even after the attacks on September 11,2001, New York City has maintained it's resilience. Those of us who are fortunate enough to live nearby or even in the city know the city's endless possibilities, energy, and unforgettable sights and sounds that could make you jaded too. This documentary is about an Irish transplant who like Liam Neeson, the McCourt brothers, and others who appear in this documentary describe the sense of feeling home in the city. It's not the same city, it's always changing and that's one constant I believe Pete Hamill, a native New Yorker and writer, can sum up best. New York City today is different than last year or yesterday. You feel like you're in a movie when you walk the city streets or just being there can make you feel alive unlike any other place. It's a magical place where celebrities can walk freely among the natives, tourists, and commuters. If I could afford to live there, I would but I could barely afford to live in New Jersey.
