Here’s a question on every New Yorker’s mind: Where is it going to happen when it happens in New York City?

I’ve thought about this a lot. When I ask my friends, they say it’s probably going to happen in Times Square, because there are a lot of people there, or Grand Central Terminal, because it’s so open and beautiful and also symbolic. Others say it’ll probably happen not in one place but several, scattered across the city; or that it’ll happen underground, in the subway system, where it’ll be hard to see what’s going on.

Personally, I think it’s going to happen in or around Union Square, because if you look at where it’s happened in other cities, it’s often in places that resemble that area. I wouldn’t put money on it, though. Which isn’t to say that I don’t think it won’t happen eventually. Because it almost certainly will.

Where do you think it’s going to happen in New York City?
