I saw the ocean the day right after I had a dream about being on a boat, limitless water and my father and I leaving everybody behind or at least not helping them. It did not have any smell to me, except when we went to the beach and I felt the smell of wet sand. I have found my favorite part of New York, somewhere around the Atlantic Avenue – Barclays Center subway station, on the way home from Coney Island. Quiet and clean, calm and safe – or at least that’s how I need to remember it. I ran into a New York I had not dreamed of before. Now I do.
