Manolo Valdes, Dama II, 2003, Dante Park at 63rd Street, Broadway, and Columbus Avenue

I’m a girl from Texas living in New York since October 2010. I fell in love with New York City on a business trip here in April 2009. I had to drag my husband along for the ride at first but just a few hours on his own while I was at the conference and he was completely on board. He began texting me mundane things like the price of milk and the quality of produce so that I could see it wasn’t so much different than Austin. What are the chances that after just one week in New York two people would leave with the exact same resolution to one day live there? We did.

Just about 18 months later we signed a lease on a new apartment and started a new chapter in our lives. This blog will hopefully give me a chance to document our adventures in New York as well as to share my perspective on the same using photos and stories. enjoy.

    Thanks for sharing this. I have yet to make it to NYC, other than driving past it on the way to Connecticut one time. This will be fun watching you exploring :-). We miss you. Marilyn and I were just talking about you yesterday.

    Stephanie! Aww well I haven’t made it to Connecticut just yet but hopefully we’ll meet up again one day somewhere! Please feel free to share this with Marilyn or anyone. I hope that this latest admissions cycle is treating you well and that everything is moving smoothly in other areas.

    Clarissa! Thanks for the link. I’ve really enjoyed reading about your adventures. I can’t believe you can get anything delivered to your home. That’s awesome!

      Myra, it’s one of my favorite things about the city. I am still getting used to it though. Just last week we were thinking of going to buy Paul and new suit but we didn’t want to carry it around all day so we were planning on going to that store last then ‘light-bulb’ we realized we were in New York of course the department store delivers! and they probably have a coat check too!
