It’s a question you have to ask yourself:
What is New York?
Seriously, it’s such a bizarre city that truly has a culture of its own, and thankfully for us the aptly named WhatIsNewYork Instagram account exists. Documenting the funniest (and the sweetest?) sights the Big Apple has to offer, WhatIsNewYork is should settle any questions you initially have.
(Or, give you about a million more questions before all is said and done.)
