What I have learned most , is that NYC residents are the most resilient people I have ever been around. The brew that is created by all of the ages, all of the personalities, all of the cultures, has each group outdoing the other, as to how normal one can act. I don't think people are numb to sirens, flashing lights, elevated warnings and police cars, I think people all look to others, see how composed they are, and get on with their day. I remember my entire building being surrounded by what had to be 500 pilce cars, swat teams, officers in flak jackets with rifles, only to hear an anouncement over a bull horn, then they all pulled away in succesive order, and drove up the west side highway in a line with their lights on. This was my second week at work in NYC and it was 6:30 am. When I inquired from withing the building, the security guards (creened and scanned every briefcase just like an airport--every day) and he said....."Just a drill", like it onlt deserved 3 words and on to the rest of the day.
