I Love NY!

Former NYC mayor Ed Koch once said, "New York is not a problem. New York is a stroke of genius!" That's pretty much how I feel. Now that he is approaching his golden years, he's purchased a burial plot in Manhattan, so he'll never have to live elsewhere. Hooray for him!

I remember at a work function years ago talking with a group of colleagues about where we would live if money were no object and we could choose to live anywhere in the world. I had just come back from the paradise known as Hawaii, and so folks were surprised to hear that I'd stay right here in NY. But I would. I really love it here.
