Woody Was Right


Don't you see the rest of the country looks upon New York City like we're left-wing, communist, Jewish, homosexual pornographers? I think of us that way sometimes and I live here. -Woody Allen as Alvy Singer from his 1977 film Annie Hall

A 2008 study by the New York City health department found that more that one-fourth of adult New Yorkers are infected with Herpes Simplex Virus-2, the virus that causes genital herpes.

An estimated one million New Yorkers are Jewish - the largest Jewish population in the world, outside of Israel. That's 12% of our city population (8,363,710), 15% of the number in the United States and 7% of the world's total.

4.5% of New York City's population (272,493) is estimated to be gay.

The Communist Party USA headquarters is based in New York City at 235 W. 23rd Street.

A study found that over two-thirds of New York City residents regularly hear their neighbors having sex.

Look's to me like Woody was right :)

Photo Note: Sex and the City is a cable television series. Two films based on the series have been made. Sex and the City 2 was recently released - the photo was taken just before the release.

I watched the movie the day of the premiere in Barcelona.
I enjoyed it so much, but I expected more than the film was.

Christina - NYC might be well liked, but revered by not be the right word :)
Andrea - That's the official New York mantra. Judit - I don't think one can fully appreciate Woody Allen's films without living here. Many of his extreme neuroses are the product of living in an extreme environment. Like Seinfeld, things that appear to be very exaggerated actually are often no so far from reality for those living here.
