Going out in the city is important to me,
Hearing the traffic as the cars rush by you is thrilling,
The horn as they honk at you is just … amazing
The nice good fresh air of hot dogs and nuts 4 nuts by Times Square is nostalgic, 
The amazing views from high buildings is what makes the city unique
The lights coming from the buildings at night is beautiful 
These lights are our stars since we don’t have any 
And honestly being involved with the atmosphere of downtown is matchless 
Its incomparable to any other city
New York City is my home

I have never visited New York, though I have always wanted to. Reading through the poem, I truly felt like I was right there with you walking the busy sidewalks and hearing the heavy traffic. It is absolutely something I want to experience one day.

I’ve never been to New York, but with all that you’re describing I feel like I’m there with you. It makes me want to visit there and understand what you’re talking about first hand.
