New York will grab you by the hand and take you for a wild ride if you let it. The city has a distinct energy that is hard to avoid. As you all know, I lived in NYC for 11 phenomenal years until our recent move to LA. Traveling back to the city as a visitor was an eye-opening experience. There was so much about the city that I missed, and couldn’t wait to spend the next few days falling back in love with NYC!
