While this request at first seems snarky, I realized that this is probably the best advice. How many tourists visit New York each year, purchase this obligatory souvenir, and then return home to a place that lacks civic pride? Take what you loved about New York, those things that made you buy the shirt, and demand them at home. Then, someday, a kid from Brooklyn may just be spotted wearing (without irony) an “I ‘Heart’ Omaha” t-shirt.
