A taste of NYC on the tarmac of RDU

I'm on a flight to New York City right now. This is my first trip where I actually anticipate spending any time in the city. Once, before, I flew in to JFK and drove through Manhattan.

It's funny how, when you board a flight to go somewhere, you start to get the sense of being there by the other people who are going. I imagine that many of the people on this flight are from New York, and bring their Urban attitude, dress, and mannerisms with them.

But, in reality, they might not be from NYC. It makes for a more interesting story if I force them all to be, though. That way, I can match elements of their behavior to my impressions of NYC that i've learned from TV and movies.
