I made my first trip to the big apple seven years ago, and I was hooked! The energy, the smells (thank goodness it wasn't summer) the constant movement. I loved it! I envisioned myself like Carrie Bradshaw....strutting down its streets in my fabulous heels waving yellow taxi cabs down and drinking martinis from ritzy rooftops until the sun came up. Well, four years later I left sunny San Diego and found myself homeless....hours after landing in Laguardia and reality set in of what REAL New York life would be like.
Nonetheless, NO ONE and NOTHING was going to take my dream from me. Three years later I'm grateful for the rocky start and so happy to be in New York. This time of year is THE BEST here. The temperatures drop, the scarves and boots come out....the leaves turn red, gold and brown... its magic! Sinatra on repeat, ear buds in and I walk down the streets aimlessly just taking it all in. This is my New York, and every week I'll share some of my experiences around Manhattan and the outer boroughs as well as my travels with all of you! Enjoy the ride!
