I am a native New Yorker. I have lived in this metropolis since I took my very first polluted breath way back in 1956. That is an awfully long time to live in this place. I have seen just about everything happen here except earthquakes and tornadoes. The biggest event that ever happened here occurred on 9/11/01. I won’t go into the horrors of that fateful day, because I don’t want to bring any bad feelings here. Let me try to stay upbeat.
There are some sights that are hard to describe. One may have an idea, but describing it exactly is something very hard to do. I should know. I am trying to describe it here.

I am a very busy man. I teach English to 4th through 8th graders in a private elementary school in Queens, New York. When that part of my day is over at 4 PM, I hop into my car and head to Long Island in order to begin tutoring sessions at my second job by 4:30 PM. It is a very busy day for me.
Science has taught me THREE things about life.
