Whatever it is you have should not affect you calling a city by its correct name. And to be honest, when I see a lot of grammatical mistakes I tend to not be interested in a post. I have no problem with language barrier but to not even know the correct name of a city?

One lesson at a time. It appears that commas and apostrophes are enough of a challenge

Way to totally not understand what he's saying. He may not be good at grammar but you're no good at reading comprehension.

Umm, no, I am very good at reading comprehension. If I am traveling somewhere and expect advice from people then I should know "New York" is two separate words. We often see people coming to C-D asking for advice only to find they aren't always serious. I completely understand asking about safe areas but to ask if it's safe for two 19 year olds seems odd to me considering that NYC is FULL of teenagers, people raising families and the plethora of colleges with students who come from other states and countries.

You must have missed the part where he has a perfectly legitimate medical reason to not be good at writing clearly. Knowing "New York" is two words and writing two words are two different things. As someone with a similar but far less severe issue I can guarantee you that I know perfectly well that 2+3=5 and 2x3=6 but that didn't stop me from writing 2+3=6 nearly half the time I took a math test.
