New Yorker Fear II

By: Gabriela Yareliz

When in New York, it’s not hard to find yourself in creepy neighborhoods. Sometimes, you will be walking down a street and that same street turns into the perfect set for a horror movie or some gangster musical.

When fear and alertness hit you, you find yourself doing the weirdest things. Maybe it’s praying the old man listening to bachata (and he is not hispanic) in the kidnapper van doesn’t kidnap you and sell your organs. Or the woman who passed you yelling to herself, you hope that when you have passed her she doesn’t turn around and come after you with a knife. You carry umbrellas on days you know it won’t rain, your keys become a permanent bracelet accessory, and sometimes, you pretend to chew on something, which adds instant toughness… oh, the art of being intimidating…
