Most important phrase to learn?
"NYU." N-Y-U – that's New York University, the expanding school that's taking over the neighbourhood. You'll see their purple flag everywhere. Not loved among the residents. Don't smile when you say it.

Hi there

Thanks for the link above. Love your blog - and your blog roll - wish I would have discovered you when we were in New York. Sadly we've already moved on.

Anonymous #1 - 'neighbourhood' is my spelling. We're Australian, the sponsor of our Grantourismo project (a local travel project aimed at inspiring people to spend longer in places and connect with locals) is a British company, and our audience is mostly comprised of British, Aust/NZ, Europeans, as well as Americans of course, so we use English-English rather than American-English.
