Steamy July is just around the corner. Some New Yorkers have told me about how terrible the weather is in New York City during the summer. They also taught me an expression - "it's so hot, you could fry an egg!" What a wonderful description. Yes, New York City is truly hot in the summer. It is the middle of June, but I have already tasted the intense heat. New York City is becoming a real “melting pot.” When I think of summers in North Korea, it was very hot too, but it was not as humid as New York City.
