I am always looking to grow-people, places, events, ideas, and living in NYC has given me that opportunity- the subway ride alone often provides an adventure, or at the least, a great story. I love to discover new restaurants, hear live music, read at my favorite coffee shop, explore the city by foot, or check out an interesting exhibit or lecture. Riverside and Central Park are close by and I try not to (=almost never) pass up an opportunity to play tennis or toss a frisbee with friends. I actually thought there would be a time when I'd be over the team sports thing, but that hasn't happened yet. :) And living in proximity to family and friends has been important to me. My parents and siblings live on the east coast and my friends from different stages of life seem to gravitate to New York at one time or another. But I’m always up for meeting someone new.
