WORDS I MISPRONOUNCED IN NYC WHEN I FIRST CAME FROM LA.

  1. Houston St.
    Outside of the five boroughs, it's pronounced HEWston. But not in NYC.
  2. Greenwich Village
    some one please tell me why it's spelled like that. or pronounced like that.
  3. Lenox Hill Hospital
    "It's not 'Len-awks' honey. it's 'Len-nix. '"
  4. Jersey
    It's no longer New.
  5. "the City"
    Not the Big Apple. Or Enn Why See. It's just the City.
  6. And also I was dumbfounded when I realized that Long Island and Queens touch. And Long Island City is actually in Queens.
