New York: There’s No Place like Home
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.
