Overheard: N00bs Edition

For the newbies

Let’s hope these are freshmen or just visitors.

Outside the Law School, two female adolescents:

“Wait, where’s NYU?”

Overheard on campus, “uptown”:

“I’m going downtown today, to 96th Street.”

Two CPJ conference attendees standing by the gates spot Alan Brinkley leaving campus:

“See that man there? He teaches here. That’s Alan Brinkley, the famous scientist.”

  5. Well

    whoever put this piece together clearly doesn't know a lot about NYC. In this city anything that is south of you on Manhattan is considered "downtown" and heading towards that location would be described as such.
