My wife Jo Ann and I were out for lunch on the Upper East Side to celebrate another wedding anniversary. We got talking to a family at the next table… They live right near the great restaurant we were enjoying. They originated from the Midwest and had lived here 10 years.
I asked the question: “What do you like about living in New York?” The answer came back quickly: “What’s there not to like?”
New York City. There is nothing not to like… If you don’t like crowds, there are places to live within 6 minutes of Manhattan. If you like to be on top of all the action there are also tons of places to live.
We’ve lived here with but a 12-minute ride from the city since 2002. Our response is exactly what the family we met at the restaurant said: “What’s not to like?!!!”
