About the Book
New York is a pretty okay city! Take for instance the Empire State Building-it's like the 15th tallest building in the world. New York-style pizza is totally delicious...just as delicious as the pizza you can get in Tampa, Des Moines, or Guam. And Saturday Night Live is really funny, sometimes, depending on the season. I Feel Relatively Neutral About New York is an affectionate skewering of the cult of New York as the center of everything-from fashion to baseball to finance to soft pretzels-delivered in a hilariously sustained neutral tone, a witty and informed text, inarguable charts, deadpan photographs, and more. Both a straight-faced love letter to and shrugging takedown of the Big Apple, this funny broadside will draw opinionated debate from both locals and armchair travelers, whether they "heart" New York or not.
From the Publisher
Have you ever loved something, but also totally not loved it at the same time?
Would you like to heart" New York, but you''re not quite ready for that kind of commitment?
Have you ever had the feeling that other cities probably have pretty good pizza, too?
This light-hearted skewering of the Big Apple sets the record straight with semi-informed opinions, questionable charts, and some slapdash Photoshop work. On a scale from one to spectacular, we give New York a five. And after reading this book, we think you''ll agree! Or whatever."
