The Real New Yorkers is a blog for those with New York City in their heart.
Some have lived here an entire lifetime. Others have come here only recently. Many were here for a spell and left. And always, there are those who dream of moving here someday. No matter the category, if you have New York City (all of New York, not just Manhattan and over-exposed precincts of the past decade’s darling, Brooklyn) in your heart, this is the blog for you.
Admittedly, while New York City is the greatest city on Earth, IMHO it’s a bear. It can be downright impossible. Which is why there are many who have lived here all their lives, don’t have NYC in their hearts — and never will. And there are newcomers who just “get it” upon arrival and wouldn’t live anywhere else.
It is my sincere hope that some of the opinions you read here tie your knickers in a twist. That ‘s as it should be. Because, as The Real New Yorkers know, a daily dose of infuriation is truly part of the New York experience.
Visit often and share my passion. And spread the word.
The Real New Yorkers is written by Martin Kleinman, a New York-based writer. His collection of short fiction, Home Front, is available now, at your favorite online bookseller and from Sock Monkey Press.
