New York Identity

"I liked not losing my New York identity and my New York way of saying 'wintuh' in February and 'waituh' in restaurants. When I walked the streets of New York, cops in police cars would call out, 'Hey, Neil. How you doin'?'  with just enough of the sound of Little Italy or a hint of an Irish brogue passed on down through their family of patrolmen. It made New York seem like a small town to me."
Neil Simon, The Play Goes On
