There is no denying the burrows of NYC are microcosms of inspiration. Just as stories and ideas hearten from any "place" on the planet by the same tokens.
I was happy to hear/see Porochista speak, to the limitation of identifying a writer (or anyone for that matter) based on their locale, and in a realistic fashion.
I wonder why questions are formuated without acknowledgment of the restrictions they so often set forth? It appears too many are extreme in their generality or too leading to inform a wider platform.
