Taxi or Uber?

Uber. They just make it too easy.

NY Times or NY Post?

NY Times.

Central Park or Hudson Park?

Hudson Park - you can often find me running on the West Side Highway.

Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s?

Whole Foods. I could spend all day at the salad bar and prepared food section.

Starbucks or bodega coffee?

I’ve been making matcha every morning these days, but when I go back to my bodega, the guys tell me how much they miss me.

The Hamptons or Upstate?

Neither - Margate, NJ.

Worse tourist trap: Magnolia Bakery or Times Square?

Times Square. I’ll happily mingle with tourists when banana pudding is involved.

Tap or bottled water?

Bottled. I recycle though!

Street meat or a slice?

Slice (from Joe’s).

FIRST SNOW OR FIRST SPRING DAY?

Spring day, 100%.

WOULD YOU RATHER: A WALK-IN CLOSET OR OUTDOOR SPACE?

This is a tough one! Walk-in closet…

SHAKE SHACK OR CORNER BISTRO?

I don’t eat red meat, but I love Danny Meyer, so Shake Shack!

MORE MAGICAL: THE STREETS AT DUSK OR THE STREETS AT DAWN?

Dawn! I frequently wake up before 6am to workout and the magical streets at dawn make that much easier.

ROOFTOP DRINKING OR PARK PICNIC?

Rooftop drinking.

MUSEUMS OR GALLERIES?

Galleries.

BROOKLYN BRIDGE OR WILLIAMSBURG BRIDGE?

Brooklyn Bridge.

BOOZY BRUNCH OR LATE-NIGHT DINNER?

Late-night dinner with my girlfriends.

SCARIER THOUGHT: A FALLING AIR CONDITIONER OR FALLING INTO AN OPEN SIDEWALK CELLAR?

I constantly fear that I’m going to fall into an open sidewalk cellar.

MORE LIKELY TO: PEOPLE WATCH OR DOG WATCH?

People watch. The people of New York inspire me everyday.

THE ANGELIKA OR LINCOLN PLAZA CINEMA?

Lincoln Plaza.
