There’s something lovely about living in a new place. The process of the unfamiliar becoming the known is so interesting to me. All of a sudden your feet known the way home all by themselves and you’re on a first name basis with the cashiers at the drugstore. The best part is seeing how much you’ve grown post move. Since moving back home in July, I’ve been thinking about how different I am now than I was when I moved to New York four years ago. For one, I hate not being able to walk. Car dependency is so inconvenient. I also learned that despite what my family thinks , quiet little me can, and actually prefers to , make it on her own.
It’s always the places that make a neighborhood feel like home so below are some of the places that make New York City feel like home to me.
