Name: Mark Indelicato Age: 14 Neighborhood: Upper East Side Occupation: Actor, co-star on Ugly Betty (season finale Thursday night on ABC!) Whoâ€™s your favorite New Yorker, living or dead, real or fictional? Jill Zarin. [Ed: Excellent answer.] Whatâ€™s the best meal youâ€™ve eaten in New York? Breakfast at Good Enough to Eat on the Upper West Side. In one sentence, what do you actually do all day in your job? I go to the set and make beautiful television magic. Would you still live here on a $35,000 salary? No way. Whatâ€™s the last thing you saw on Broadway? West Side Story. Do you give money to panhandlers? Only the ones who are REALLY homeless. Whatâ€™s your drink? Root beer? â€¦ I don't drink yet. How often do you prepare your own meals? A lot; the recession has been holding back our eating-out abilities. Whatâ€™s your favorite medication? ADVIL! Lifesaver. Whatâ€™s hanging above your sofa? Nothing now; waiting to get a painting for it. How much is too much to spend on a haircut? For a guy, $85. I guess for a girl it's different â€” haha. Whenâ€™s bedtime? Hmmm ... About 10:30 on a school night. Which do you prefer, the old Times Square or the new Times Square? Old one, because it was less crowded. What do you think of Donald Trump? I donâ€™t really follow him, but heâ€™s rich! What do you hate most about living in New York? I donâ€™t really hate anything, but if I had to choose I would say how expensive cabs are. Who is your mortal enemy? I can't say! I donâ€™t want this person to read it and see their name! Whenâ€™s the last time you drove a car? When I was 4, my dad let me "help" him back out of the driveway, but I'm amazing at driving golf carts. How has the Wall Street crash affected you? Fewer shopping sprees, not going out to eat dinner as much, and fewer cabs. Times, Post, or Daily News? Post all the way. What makes someone a New Yorker? I guess if you're independent, not afraid of much, and extremely stylish, that makes you a pretty good candidate for being a New Yorker.
