Our intern Nicole is a pretty loyal New Yorker – and with that comes a long list of things she will never do.

New Yorkers will never pay attention to street signs when they walk.  They’ll probably never eat a street hotdog or actually calm down in a yoga class (although, Garance totally disagrees and thinks calming down at yoga IS such a part of the NY lifestyle).  Most won’t even download Uber because it feels disloyal to yellow cabs.

But last week Nicole was dragged to a yoga class and finally found herself enjoying it, her mind able to slow down and block out the city noise. And now you’re wondering why are we even talking about this?!

Well, an interesting thought was brought up – was she becoming a New York hypocrite? Someone who was gradually losing a bit of her city edge or actually, just gaining something that makes living in the city that much better?
