I met Liliya here in Peter Cooper Village today. She walked up to me with her arms full of shopping bags and very excitedly asked me to take a picture of her in front of the cherry trees. She then proceeded to dispense advice and wisdom, in her Lithuanian lilt, for the next twenty minutes or so, gleefully snapping away with her camera in the process. She loves New York and can't imagine being anywhere else, but says she doesn't think it's for everyone: "Normal person doesn't live here."
“Normal person doesn’t live here.”….lol
Is that why she didn’t face the camera?
