Up to Speed

Fifth Avenue

"If New Yorkers are anything, they are 'up to speed.' In New York you can have a fascinating conversation with anyone you meet, from the street panhandler trying to sell you an original poem to the hot dog vendor, waiter, doorman, cabbie, shop owner, or even the person crammed in next to you on the packed subway. And not only are they all in the know, but they know they are in the know, and they are strongly opinionated about what they know."
Michael S. Durham, National Geographic Traveler
