I've lived most of my adult life in New York City and I wouldn't have it any other way. While the City is a great place to visit, it's an even better place to live. Great art everywhere in galeries and wonderful museums. Great art institutions such as the Art Students League. Wonderful restaurants and theaters. Parks galore. Architecture to die for. And buses and subways to take you just about everywhere. Upstate New York is the icing on the cake. I love New York.
