New to New York

These are the questions a person who's just moved to New York in July asks:

It's hot. How much hotter does it get on a scale from 1-10?

How much air conditioning is required?

The look of the air conditioning is hurting my sensitive Swedish sense of aesthetics (yes, am bratty). Are there any alternatives? How effective are fans?

Will anyone who has swimmed in the Washington Square Park fountain ever be clean again?

Are the organic things sold everywhere really organic?

Why are the spaces where you're supposed to walk in the subway so narrow you almost fall down on the tracks all the time?

I love it here, is it really true that I'm here for real?
