Several readers sent along the New York magazine Q-and-A with 19-year-old actress Sarah Hyland, who lives in the East Village.
Who's your favorite New Yorker, living or dead, real or fictional?
Carrie Bradshaw or Mickey Rooney. When I was 15 I thought I was [Carrie] reincarnated. And I just love Mickey Rooney! Who doesn't? He's so tiny and cute.
Do you give money to panhandlers?
It really depends. If they really look like they're having a hard time, then yes. But I've seen so many people in the East Village pretend they're missing a leg and then they pull it out of nowhere and walk away with all the money they got during the day. So it really depends. I usually give money to talented-musician panhandlers.
I have no idea why you people sent me this link. I like Mickey Rooney too. So, lay off. She's only 19.
