What is your quintessential NY moment?

Knowing I have to be in Queens within 45 minutes, catching the 7 right in time. Getting to where I need to be 5 minutes EARLY (which means ON TIME). Getting a candy bar from a kid on the train for a dollar since I didnt have time to eat. After my meeting, grabbing a sandwhich with freshly cut boar's head meat EXACTLY how I order it. And not having to share one friendly word with anyone on my way there or back.

What do you and don't you miss about NY?

MISS: Directness, Punctuality, Bagels, Delis, Nightlife Options, Diamond District, Speed of Business people and Hand Car Washes. DONT MISS: Not making it to work without being stepped on, the smell, the weather, the beaches, rats, and looking over your shoulder when a street light is out.

What is your favorite thing to do when you are in NY?

Enjoy all of the great food with friends and family. Also love pick up baseball and softball games in the parks all day long. Also miss sporting events. Petco Park just doesnt have the same intensity.

How often do you make it back to visit NY?

About once a year. Usually for my mother on mother's day or her birthday.

What part of NY are you from?

Spanish Harlem. (EAST HARLEM)


Hey Guys, names Rich Texidor. I am from Spanish Harlem and have been dying to meet up with some New Yorkers. I have recently transferred out here for work and would love a step up in pace with some fellow gritty New Yorkers. Mets! Nets! Jets!
