You grew up in New York, and you're raising your son there too. What makes New York such a great place for families?
I think New York is awesome, the way that you're able to experience different cultures, different people. There's never just one type of food or sound or song or religion or style that you can find. It's so varied, and there's so much in it. That's probably a lot of the influence of why it was so important for me to be able to bring different cultures into the lives of kids through "Mama Mae and LeeLee" because I've been exposed to that kind of variety and that type of sonic diversity. For kids to be able to hear that and see that in their young mind and their young life, I really think it inspires you on a level you don't even realize. I love that about the city.
