I’m flying to New York in about 7 hours, my first trip back since I moved to San Francisco in December. I miss New York a lot. The food, the nightlife, the energy, the diversity of people.
When I was in New York, I took advantage of everything the city has to offer. And that began by living in *the best neighborhood* in the city. If I walked for 15 minutes from my apartment in New York, I could explore parts of: the East Village, Alphabet City, Union Square, Gramercy Park, West Village, NYU, Soho, Nolita, and the Lower East Side. And that’s all on foot!
If I walk for 15 minutes from where I am now… I’m still in Soma 🙂
Ok, admittedly I’m not living in the densest/funnest part of San Francisco (we’re planning to move at the end of the year). But it’s still staggering to see the difference here. The neighborhoods in New York are small. The blocks are tiny. It’s incredibly easy to get around. And it helps that the whole city is flat 🙂
I’m really looking forward to this trip. You can expect lots of photos and video while i’m there.
