React: 29 Important Questions We Have For People From New York

How come New York has the best bagels?

The React TL;DR: Why is it so rainy but why are bagels so great?

Most bewildering is the New York office. For us seaside brits, it’s hard to imagine being surrounded by so many tall buildings. A place where paying with your phone is already a thing is deeply concerning.

But, we’re not alone…

On Twitter, people are asking only the most important questions…

About your unique demeanor…

Stay classy, NYC.
