Assignment: Advice Brittany D'Amico 3NOTHING HAS TO BE SAIDNew York City is a big city that most seem not to understand yet try to explain it; and I don't do it any justice nether. It's now Sunday I've been writing this paper since Thursday and yet I'm this far, but I get it now. It's because NO ONE understands this city so how can we give advice. I nor anyway can give you New York because New York goes to you. You're either born with it or it finds you.NOTHING! No one says shall ever help you "ease" your move to New York City.

Yes, you might hear 5 cop cars pass and then 1 ambulance stop by your house but take that as a good sign for you. You're not the one in the back of any of those vehicles.
