I’ve been away for a few weeks traveling and exploring New York City with a friend of mine. What a zany/exhausting/ eye-opening joyride of an adventure it’s been! As a New Yorker who’s lived here longer than anywhere else, I like to think I know the city well. Yet every time I venture into the thick of it, I’m still amazed at all there is to see and do and experience. All the different people from around the world who call this wild city their home, the melting pot of cultures, the stories, the dreams.
I don’t always enjoy living in New York. To be honest, the weather is unpleasant or depressing at least 50% of the year (ask any New Yorker and they’ll tell you no one moves to the city for the weather!), it’s often noisy and crowded with an energy that can be overwhelming if you don’t know how to disconnect yourself.
