New York City isn’t like the rest of the country. Don’t believe us? Look at what national chains call pizza. Stuffed crusts? HOT DOG CRUSTS? Yeesh.
This may pass for pizza in parts of the country that don’t know any better, but here in New York, good sauce and a perfect crust are more important than weird gimmicks. Real New Yorkers eat local pizza, whether it’s from the fancy brick-oven pizzeria in the next neighborhood or the cheap slice place on the corner.
When it comes to finding the right insurance for your Brooklyn apartment, there are a lot of national insurers with 800 numbers who think they know what you need. Thanks to the stuffed crusts, you know better. You need to talk to someone local. Someone who knows that New York property values and labor costs are higher, while crime rates are lower. Someone who knows how to deal with the peculiarities of Brooklyn co-op boards and condo associations, and can evaluate the risks inherent in buildings with older plumbing and electricity.
