When I visit the coast of North Carolina, I enjoy seeing all the homes flying flags. I had come to think maybe coastal families were more patriotic. Visiting New York City showed me how much this city loves our country. I couldn't help but feel patriotic as I walked down streets and saw our flag proudly displayed time after time.
I want to share how nice New Yorkers were to us during our trip. Not once were we treated rudely during our week in the city. Sometimes I initiated the conversation with an employee or a stranger on the subway, and each time the person turned out to be kind. I understand why so many people proclaim, "I love New York!"
