“Thank you for once again in the face of gross inhumanity for inspiring and solidifying my belief in humanity and the people of this country,” he said. “Thank you for everything you’ve done. That’s quite a little city you’ve got going on up there.”

Stewart referenced the historic rivalry between New York and Boston.
