After a bumpy and overbooked airline flight, I finally made it to New York. I just absolutely love it so far, despite the humid weather. There is so much ENERGY in this city. When I discovered that I lived in Greenwich Village, I was excited. I took a tour around Greenwich Village, Union Square, Washington Square, The Avenue of America, 5th Avenue, and Alphabet City.
I'm learning to be a NEW YORKER by learning to jaywalk. I feel accomplished when I can cross the street without getting hit by a cab (this afternoon, a cab almost hit me). Now, I just have to jaywalk with finese.
So far my first impressions follow the cliche, "I LOVE NY!"
