- 東下城的 Houston 大街不唸 Hue-ston (德州休斯頓發音)，正確發音是 How-ston
- 用地鐵認路 (怎麼去妳家? 喔，布魯克林 L 線)
著名記者兼作家 E. B. White 曾寫道:
There is, first, the New York of the man or woman who was born there, who takes the city for granted and accepts its size, its turbulence as natural and inevitable. Second, there is the New York of the commuter — the city that is devoured by locusts each day and spat out each night. Third, there is New York of the person who was born somewhere else and came to New York in quest of something ….Commuters give the city its tidal restlessness, natives give it solidity and continuity, but the settlers give it passion.
有幸成為第三種人 — 對這座城市帶有熱情，積極探索的 “settler": 來紐約追逐夢想之人。
