goodbye ny

 

 

Shortly before we moved here from the South, Luke and I listened to this wonderful book by a lifelong native of NYC. We hoped it would acclimate us to the city and give us a bit of insight to understand, navigate, and experience it the best we could. At the time I found it difficult to really hear what the author was saying as he described locations and street names I'd never heard of or seen. Now that we're leaving, it seems only fitting to listen to the book again. After our time living nearby and frequently visiting the city, the stories are so much easier to place in my mind.

I'll miss New York. A year and a half isn't nearly long enough to even begin to get to know such a vast and interesting place. But we did our best to take advantage of the time we lived so close to this magical city, and I will always remember it.
