TRUST ME, I’M A NEW YORKER: Marina KhoroshShare
Taking a moment to ask real New Yorkers real New York questions.
Marina Khorosh, Lifestyle/Fashion Writer, Founder of Dbagdating.com, Vogue Magazine Contributor.
Pedicure or massage?
Massage. I type all day!
NY Times or NY Post?
Love my Sunday Times.
Central Park or Hudson Park?
Hudson Park, but only because it’s closer.
Would you rather a walk-in closet or outdoor space?
Outdoor space seems like the pinnacle of luxury.
More magical: The streets at dusk or the streets at dawn?
Dawn, when you’re alone with the city. (Well, give or take a few vagabonds.)
For modern art: The MoMa or The Whitney?
Brooklyn Bridge or Williamsburg Bridge?
Brooklyn Bridge. I live next door.
Dream home: luxury high-rise or brownstone?
Taxi or Uber?
Taxis. After a few years in Europe, they are a blessing.
Scarier thought: A falling air conditioner or falling into an open sidewalk cellar?
The latter. If I were scared of falling air conditioners, I would probably never leave the house.
First snow or first spring day?
First spring days = resurrection.
More likely to people watch or dog watch?
People, preferably in Washington Square Park.
Street meat or a slice?
Slice! Street meat is not to be trusted. I also have a decade-long love affair with La Esquina corn.
Boozy brunch or late-night dinner?
Boozy late-night dinner!
Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s?
Starbucks or bodega coffee?
I recently became the fancy coffee person I once hated. These days I’m into McNulty’s Ethiopian blend.
Better mural: The Monkey Bar or The Waverly?
The Waverly. It depicts the original West Village hipster set!
Tap or bottled water?
More iconic: The Empire State Building or The Chrysler?
Empire State Building. I remember standing underneath it as a little Russian immigrant kid and thinking, that’s the most important building in the world.
