Home to more people than any other place in the US of A, the streets of this sleepless city are thick with eight million people and the eight million dreams that hang in the balance as their lives and livings are made. Caught between the corner bodegas and penthouse lofts, the pulsing nightlife and the daily grind, denizens of the five boroughs learn to grow a thick skin, talk fast, walk faster, and get a little aggressive to get by. Replete with neon signs, uptown finery, plaid-clad hipsters, culture vultures, and sad-faced Wall Street suits of black and blue, New York City.
“To escape the crowds, why not drop by during our off-peak hours - every weekday morning”
Hmmm, a helpful tip from the Ikea Brooklyn website. I chose to ignore and head there on a sunny Sunday morning. I added to my malm collection.
