So, New York, What Makes You Happy?


This week, New York polled all sorts of New Yorkers for its “50 Simple Steps to Happiness” guide. The result, from mostly experts like yoga instructors and therapists, included advice like, “Never show up for drinks on an empty stomach, or for that matter, let yourself get so hungry you’ll eat street meat,” and “Forget the brown-rice sushi.” For a more, er, authentic poll, we sent our Man on the Street Tim Murphy to see what makes your average city-dweller smile. (For the record, things that make Tim himself happy are rainbows, jeggings, and light-skinned black men.)
