Well, we've finally MOANed our way to NYC. While this was actually completed last week, I fell ill with dysentery and had to tend to an oxen with a bad hoof, so the update is a bit late, and I do apologize. I'm just happy I've recovered enough to rejoin the trail!
NYC has been a long awaited pit stop for this journey. Not only for the amazing history, sights, and sounds, but it the home to the incomparable red_wagon and Red2Black as well as the temporary home to her royal highness, the Lady Snark...Firebird!!! MOANers, you can run (which would give you more MOANing miles) but you can't hide from the snarkbite. It's everywhere!
NYC is also not too far from where I grew up on Long Island. I was raised in Syosset, NY, which also home to Natalie Portman, Idina Mentzel, and Judd Apatow. Oh, and my 10th grade English teacher was Balky Bartakamous' roommate at Yale (I will credit anyone who knows who that is with an extra 10 MOANing miles this week). Syosset is also the same town I escaped from every summer to attend sleepaway camp in Pennsylvania. It is in this tradition that I present you with NYC--Mad Libs Edition!
NYC was purchased (number) years ago by (noun) from the (noun). Early settlers in NYC lived in (noun) and worked tirelessly in (noun). These settlers were (adjective) and (adjective). Ellis Island and the (monument) are the beacon of hope for hundreds of thousands of immigrants. But NYC has come along way since then to become the (adjective) and financial capital of the world. It's difficult to become (emotion) in NYC. There's Broadway, Central Park, tons of restaurants and stores, and many, many (adjective) teams. In fact, this year the NY Giants beat the New England Patriots to win the Superbowl! NYC and the surrounding areas are home to many famous people including (person), (person) and (person), bands, and (adjective) landmarks. Hundreds of movies and TV shows have been filmed here such as (movie/TV show), (movie/TV show) and (movie/TV show). While there is a lot to say about NYC, nothing sums it up better than this...NYC is the (adjective) city in the world!
So, that's it for NYC. Put on your kevlar vest because Philly's next!
