The Situation

In simple terms, the “situation” is when “Original” or “True” New Yorkers are explaining the terms of a story, issue, scenario or any other type of locality.  We always start off with “Here’s the situation” or “This is the situation”.   In this case,   the “Situation” is what we are using to describe what this online Publication(You Me NYC) is all about.  We are published for all New Yorkers by Original New Yorkers.
