"This year, I've definitely seen more people wearing things you can only find here," Miyako Bellizzi

Followed by:

Forced to remain in New York, she has been wearing a knit beanie from B&H Photo Video.

While B&H is headquartered in NYC, they have a very active online marketplace, and so anybody could have bought said beanie.

Some kind of madlibs where the proper nouns are all nonsense.

You're not unique New York.

Ahh New York fashion people, absolutely enthralled with themselves.   Mimes are more useful to society.

Noo Yawkers sure love writing about themselves. They're as insufferable and up their own asses Texans. Nobody gives a shiat.

Actually I imagine it would be quite the opposite. If I left the NYC area, I imagine I would own more NY-centric articles of clothing, not fewer, because missing home or representing home or whatever. I once had a t-shirt that said QUE (newline) ENS in the Run DMC logo style and another that simply had the outline of Long Island including Brooklyn and Queens; however, I bought those specifically for like personal "flair" when I delivered for a pizzeria on the NYC/Long Island border since we didn't have uniforms. I suppose I have clothes with logos of my favorite sports teams but I actually follow them so it's not really a fashion statement, I'm stuck with those colors in my wardrobe whether I like them or not.

Also, locals wearing I <3 NY shirts is a pretty recent phenomenon, I dunno who started it but before the late 2000s or it would've been the equivalent of wearing a Hawaiian shirt in the Caribbean. I also don't think the author is aware the I <3 NY is more or less an ad campaign to convince tourists to LEAVE THE CITY NEXT TIME THEY VISIT and go to the suburbs to go to the beach or upstate to go camping or whatever. I pass through JFK a lot to pick up and drop off rental cars and it's blindingly obvious what those ads are for.

They look like they got their clothes from the homeless shelter.

Huh, I guess some people really do need unique New York.

Would invest in Zizmore gear, but recently set aside all my money to Learn Guitar With Dan Smith.

Ha! I was using my Citarella bag earlier today when I went went shopping. I used to have an original Crazy Eddie t-shirt when I was a kid but last year I bought a Crazy Eddie hat at Goodwill for $1.

I never have to say that. The worst part about going on vacation is that the second the locals hear my voice all they want to talk to me about id New York this, New York that. For fark's sake, I'm on vacation, let me forget about the place I'm from for five goddamned seconds. I should start saying I'm from South Florida just so I can have fun lying and the accent kinda fits.

Just say you are from Cleveland, people will spread the news and actively avoid you from that point on.
