after three years in the beautiful place, i have to say i'm surprised every day at how much i love and enjoy this city. i haven't traveled many places, but as far as a place to live, nyc has really done it right. there are good days, even great. there are bad and stressful days when getting groceries is even a day long activity. but i wouldn't trade it. i find myself very grateful to have the opportunity to live here, grow here and experience this place.
