Hailed in: Hell’s Kitchen
Hails from: Puerto Rico
I got a little motor car when I was eight. It had a remote control, it went really fast, and I covered it with stickers. It was really cool. I’ve gotten better presents since, but that was the one I had the most fun with.
Hailed at: JFK Airport
Hails from: Queens,br> I don’t know what my favorite is, but this year I’m asking for a Kindle. I read a lot and I think that would be useful for when I’m not busy at work. I can read the newspaper on it; I’d rather do that than buy them everyday. Maybe that’ll end up being my favorite.
Hailed in: Lower East Side
Hails from: San Francisco
I think the best gift to give or get is booze, since everyone drinks but no one really wants to drop a lot on a good bottle. I got Jameson one year and I was really happy about that, so now I always buy people bottles of that. No complaints yet! Well, the hangovers.
Hailed on: Atlantic Avenue
Hails from: Probably a nice piece of clothing. My wife has really good taste and I like what she picks out for me. One time, as a wedding present, she had a really nice suit tailored for me. [Were you surprised?] Well, no. I had to get measured for it and there are only so many things that you can get after being measured. So I had a pretty good idea what was coming. But the fabric was a surprise. It was blue.
