Another reason to love New York

This from the Metropolitan Diary today (a beautiful moment of perfect NY co-existence):

As Jay Jennings was walking to work on 34th Street during the recent Jewish holidays, he waited while a line of Orthodox men entered a synagogue in front of him.

A hip-hop kid, in basketball jersey and baggy jeans, stopped beside him, looked over the line of men in black hats and suits and nodded.

"Yeah," he said to no one in particular, "kicking it old school."

This fits perfectly with this moment which I blogged about some time ago.

Something tells me the men in the line would've smiled, hearing that.

Love it! Dan grew up there, you know, and he knows so much about Jewish & Italian culture. Or word meanings. I don't know anything. Whenever I hear Yiddish or Italian in movies or TV, I always turn to Dan and he knows what was just said!

But his ancestors are Swedish!

Dan says everyone who lives there eventually becomes a little bit of everything. *grins*
