Question: How has New York changed?

Scott Schuman:  New York has changed…  It changed a lot.  I’ve been here almost 20 years and maybe when I first moved here people would have said it would be a horrible place to raise kids and now I think everyone would agree it’s a pretty good place to raise kids.  It’s clean.  It’s modern.  I mean I travel around now a lot and I still think New York looks great.  You know I mean all the time there is new buildings going up, new different kinds of architecture.  There is just always something happening, so I have to sound like such a Yankees fan and such a New York fan, but I still can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather live than here.
