Favorite place in NYC: 79th Street Boat Basin (But don’t tell anyone I don’t wanna ruin the vibe.)

Best response to this ridiculous hashtag: #ReplaceSongTitleWithBoob Rolling in the Boob.

Biggest NYC pet peeve: Endless horn honking as an expression of personal feelings about life, as opposed to an actual traffic issue.

Popular song you are sick of/never liked: Call Me Maybe. Ugh, please don’t.

Best way to spot a tourist: They have a sense of awe in their eyes as they walk around NYC. Real New Yorkers have a sense of crazy.

Meet the lovely Crissle! She always has us cracking up whether it’s on her tell-it-like-is Twitter feed or on her number one podcast, the Read, with partner in crime, Kid Fury. And she loves Beyonce as much as we do, so you know she’s got her priorities straight. Crissle is doing some big things. So if you don’t know, now you know.

Crissle

Name: Crissle West

Occupation: Assistant by day, writer and pop culture critic by night.

Neighborhood: Washington Heights

Favorite Twitter account: @HonestToddler kills me every time. I can’t wait for that book to come out. I actually pre-ordered it, and I usually don’t pre-order anything unless Beyoncé made it.

Favorite place in NYC: Libation is great when they don’t have the music up too loud. Sometimes it’s like trying to have brunch at Abercrombie & Fitch, but it’s cool otherwise.

Best response to one of these ridiculous hashtags: #ThingsWhiteFolksWillDie4 gourmet mayonnaise and scallions sandwich; open-mouthed kisses from dogs

Biggest NYC pet peeve: Smokers on the sidewalk drive me insane. People who lean on the pole in the subway during rush hour are the living worst.

What competitive reality show would you win and why?: I’m not a big fan of reality tv, but if I had to pick a show it’d be The Amazing Race if only because they get to travel a lot.

Where would you live if you didn’t live in NYC?: Probably Los Angeles, but I’ll most likely settle down in Houston when it’s all said and done.

Popular song you are sick of/never liked: Gangnam Style. It took me months to even watch the video, which was boring and ridiculous.

Drink of choice: Hennessy and apple juice. I’m saddened by the number of bars here that don’t have apple juice, but Hennessy and coke is an okay substitute. I’m a big fan of Ciroc and cranberry, too. And any wine. I’m an alcoholic basically.

Best way to spot a tourist: Anyone who stops in the middle of the sidewalk is a tourist.
