Reports of its demise?

Sorry. I can’t stop thinking about it. Because it seems everyone is talking about it. “LAND OF THE FLEE” screamed the New York Post last week. I guess their earlier and more staid headline “New Yorkers flee in droves” wasn’t … Continue reading

Unpopular opinion.

I’m just gonna say it: I still love NYC. I know, I know, everyone is leaving. In droves. And I can’t wait to go back. Every day I have a twinge or two of homesickness for the greatest city in … Continue reading

NYC, just under the wire.

Stepping it up.
