So, by now everyone has heard of the Chelsea bombing. It has struck fear in NYC and in the country, but we are resilient as a whole in NYC. We will keep going, we will watch for you, and we will keep going on with daily life but remain vigilant. Nothing stops New Yorkers, and here's a list of things that can't stop us that we actually fear:
1. Tourists (sorry, guys).
2. People asking us for directions.
3. Rush hour traffic.
4. Delayed subways.
5. Times Square crowds.
6. Long lines.
