Reflecting on an earlier time in his life, the ever interesting talent tells us how much he enjoyed New York 20 to 30 years ago, compared to today:

“This is purely a personal thing, but I tend to like New York back in the 80s and the 90s versus what it is now. I think it’s a little bit too sterile now. I think it’s a little bit too politically correct, a little too clean. I liked it when it was a little bit grittier quite honestly. I don’t necessarily think that we are the city that never sleeps anymore. I don’t. I don’t think that we have that reputation anymore. I think that nightlife has taken a downward turn. It’s not creative like it once was. But we are a cleaner and safer city so there’s a lot to be said about that.”

“Unbelievably honored, humbled and proud. “

New Year’s Resolutions for Mason Reese:

“I’d like to get a little healthier. I mean I know that sounds cliché, but I’d like to drop a couple of pounds.”
