Taxi or Uber?

Uber.

NY Times or NY Post?

I get my news from social media. Everything is on my phone.

Central Park or Hudson Park?

Central Park. It has a lot more open space.

Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s?

I’m a Trader Joe’s guy. 

Starbucks or bodega coffee?

Starbucks.

The Hamptons or Upstate?

I much prefer hanging out in The Hamptons.

Worse tourist trap: Magnolia Bakery or Times Square?

Times Square, especially when it’s hot and humid! 

Tap or bottled water?

I know New York City tap is supposed to be the best, but I still prefer bottled.

Street meat or a slice?

I’m in New York City! Of course I'm going to choose pizza.

First snow or first spring day?

There’s not a baseball player out there who doesn't love spring.

Would you rather: a walk-in closet or outdoor space?

Outdoor space, please. 

Shake Shack or Corner Bistro?

I’ll line up for a Shake Shack burger any day. 

More magical: The streets at dusk or the streets at dawn?

Dawn, before the rest of the city has woken up.

Rooftop drinking or park picnic?

Rooftop. You can't beat the views in this city.

Museums or galleries?

Can I say Netflix?

Brooklyn Bridge or Williamsburg Bridge?

Brooklyn.

Boozy brunch or late-night dinner?

Late-night dinner.

Scarier thought: a falling air conditioner or falling into an open sidewalk cellar?

You really gotta watch out for those open cellar doors! My fiancé won’t even walk over them.

More likely to: people watch or dog watch?

People watch—there are the most beautiful, interesting, crazy looking people in this city. 

The Angelika or Lincoln Plaza CINEMA?

I’m closer to Lincoln Plaza.
