Just one year ago, I moved to Manhattan and it was quite a culture shock.
From perfecting the exact speed to swipe a Metrocard and walk through the turn style without breaking stride, practicing my aloof “New York” face so people won’t bother me on the subway, and finding out the hard way that New York City very quickly steals all your money through rent and Seamless.com takeout food, I eventually learned the ways of the city…and it was no easy task.
I’ve heard that it takes two full years of living in New York to feel at home, so this blog is my journey through year two. I hope to impart some of the knowledge I’ve gained along the way, to make the transition easier for newcomers to the big apple. I will also throw in some posts pertaining to whatever is going on in my life (which is searching for a job, at the moment). I enjoy anything journalism/pr/communications-related, pinning interesting things to my Pinterest board (check mine out and follow me!), shopping, trying fun new workouts and visiting as many places in NYC as possible, so expect to see some of these types of posts too.
In the words of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys, “Now you’re in New York, These streets will make you feel brand new, Big lights will inspire you, Let’s hear it for New York.”
