If you had the opportunity to spend one day in New York City with a famous New Yorker, who would it be and what would you do? (Your New Yorker can be anyone -past or present, fictional or nonfictional - who is commonly associated with New York City; they do not necessarily have to have been born and raised in New York.)
So I saw the word "fictional" and decided I'd take the riskier route and choose a new yorker who doesn't really exist. It took some time but i settled on Daredevil. First off I'd like to know if you think it's a good idea, or a bad one.
Here's what I have so far, I don't really know what direction to go from here. I was going to focus on the fact that he's a lawyer during the day, but i'm not really sure what to do from there.
"Um yes I think I'll order the bacon and cheddar omelet" I tell the waiter, before handing the diner's breakfast menu to him. I look across the table at my friend, Matt Murdock, who is still deciding what he wants.
Although he's blind, Matt needs no assistance in reading the menu. Using his heightened sense of touch, he simply brushes his fingers across the letters of the page in order to read the description of each dish. "I'll have the steak and hash combo" he finally decides. The waiter jots down the order, takes the menu, and walks away.
Although he's one of the best around, not many people know Matt Murdock the lawyer. Most know him by another title, the fearless superhero Daredevil. As a boy, Matt lost his sense of sight when some radioactive wasted accidentally splashed into his eyes. While the radiation destroyed his vision, it greatly enhanced all his other senses. Nowadays, he uses his heightened abilities to fight New York's crime, donned in crimson tights and armed with his trademark Billy club.
Our orders arrive, and we devour them in a very short amount of time. After the bill is paid, Matt suggests we head over to his office, so he can show me what he does for a living. I agree, and so we walk to Nelson & Murdock Law Offices.
