To my future children,

I grew up in Manhattan. The great concrete jungle. I cannot imagine living anywhere else. I know there are issues with emissions and cars, but there are also public bike systems, bike lanes, walking and numerous amounts of public transit that I would like to think helps keep our emission levels down. I wish there were more cities like New York, and I hope you get to visit all of them some day. I have travelled a decent amount, and I hope traveling and learning about other cultures and food and languages is still something that can be done.
