Meet the New York City Expert: David Collins

Our New York City Expert David Collins took one bite of the Big Apple and never looked back. Since that first taste he’s been there an additional five times, learned the infamous New York City subway system, and has walked through all five boroughs. Here he shares a hint at what makes him the expert, but like this city, you’ll need to see for yourself:

1. How many times have you visited New York?
