Who's your favorite New Yorker, living or dead, real or fictional?
I have two: Eleanor Roosevelt and Jerry Seinfeld. For vastly different reasons.

What's the best meal you've eaten in New York?
Omakase at Sushi of Gari; lobster roll at Pearl Oyster Bar; lamb chops at Devi.

In one sentence, what do you actually do all day in your job?
I anchor the early morning news for WCBS-TV from 5 to 7 a.m.

Would you still live here on a $35,000 salary?
Definitely ... but with many, many more roommates!

What's the last thing you saw on Broadway?
I saw In the Heights last weekend. It was fantastic, and a great snapshot of how New York varies block by block — each one with its own rich flavor.

Do you give money to panhandlers?
Yes.

What's your drink?
Mojito.

How often do you prepare your own meals?
Two to three times a week.

What's your favorite medication?
Emergen-C packets every morning. I know they probably don't work, but I choose to be fooled.

What's hanging above your sofa?
A window, overlooking the Hudson.

How much is too much to spend on a haircut?
$200.

When's bedtime?
I don't have one. Anywhere from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m.

Which do you prefer, the old Times Square or the new Times Square?
Vintage!

What do you think of Donald Trump?
He's a symbol of American capitalism, and a New York icon.

What do you hate most about living in New York?
The rats!

Who is your mortal enemy?
Insincerity.

When's the last time you drove a car?
Two months ago. I rented a ZipCar to look at a dog on Long Island.

How has the Wall Street crash affected you?
Whatever I had, minus 50 percent.

Times, Post, or Daily News?
All three.

Where do you go to be alone?
Central Park.

What makes someone a New Yorker?
Tenacity!
