Joshua Abella is the single most important person on the Upper East Side, whether you like to admit it or not. He is the very heart of this place, and without him, the UES would be nothing. The first time I met Joshua was during Cross Country practice freshman year, in Central Park. I was nothing but a foreigner back then; just some clueless kid from Westchester who had no idea where he was going or what he was doing in the great big city of New York. But then, I met Josh. He showed me every single corner of this city, and he took me in like I was family. Ever since then, I've become so close to Josh, and I'm sure all of you have, too. I don't think I've ever met a more positive, upbeat guy in my entire life, who treats everyone like a true friend. But there is a problem, something that we cannot allow to happen: Josh may leave the UES forever. If we let him move to some no-name town in the middle of nowhere (yes that is subs @Hoboken), then we lose the person who kept the UES alive all this time. So please, don't take away Josh Abella from us. It's time to give the city that never sleeps a wake-up call, and to keep the friend we all know and love in his real home.
