the sky gets that awful pink color
when it's supposed to be black - a
signal that Detroit has some effect on
our city - but overall Ann Arbor's
air is relatively clean. Traffic isn't
bad, grass and trees are plentiful, and
camping and hiking can be found less
than 20 minutes away.
Yet Ann Arbor is more than sub-
urbia, U.S.A. Poetry readings, dance
performances, plays, bands, nation-
ally renown speakers and "artsy"
movies are all a regular part of Ann
Arbor life - not to mention a never-
ending list of special festivals and
other note-worthy occasions such as
the Film Festival, Art Fair, Blues and
Jazz Festival, and of course, Hash
Bash. Ann Arbor has an impressive
assortment of book stores, which is

apparently appreciated since the city
boasts the highest per capita book
sales in the nation. New authors are
constantly stopping by for book-sign-
ing and readings, plus Ann Arbor
hosts a slew of artists of its own.
Then there's food. Speaking as a
great eater, I can attest to the fact that
Ann Arbor offers a plethora of di-
verse and delicious cuisine. Area res-
taurants serve almost every type of
food imaginable, with an abundance
of bar and grills and a surprising num-
ber of superb Korean and Middle
Eastern spots. And as for competing
with New York City, there are some
delis here that not only serve authen-
tic NYC-style food, they have New
York City prices as well. The coffee-
shops, which seem to grow exponen-
tially, offer good brew and preten-
tious conversation, if so desired.
The music scene isn't amazing,
but a lot of up-and-coming bands in-

clude Ann Arbor in their tours, and
there're a variety of clubs in which to
house them.
Athletics affect this city as well.
Not only do many residents cheer on
Detroit teams, but the University it-
self provides terrific spirit that spreads
throughout Ann Arbor. The crowd
that lines the streets on football Satur-
days and after Final Four games speakO
for themselves, and quite loudly.
Overall, Ann Arbor has a slightly
cosmopolitan feel. The University's
foreign students and faculty expand
the city's horizons, and people flock
here from all over the country be-
cause of its reputation as a progres-
sive and safe city.
So that's why I don't think the
comment about New York City was.
so off. No, Ann Arbor isn't perfect,
but it's a pretty great place to live, and
besides, New York City is hundreds
of miles away.
