Only in New York Week
New York City is one of my favorite places to visit. Growing up on Long Island, it was easy to take the Long Island Railroad into the city for some fun and excitement. It was about an hour ride from Lindenhurst to Penn Station and the atmosphere was night and day. I loved the uniqueness of the city and the wide assortment of things to do. But I also looked forward to returning home to our quieter village. However, I loved living so close the the city so I could visit whenever I had the train fare.
My niece Katie recently made the daring move to the Big Apple. She has grown up in Florida her whole life and longed for a change. After graduating from beauty school, she wanted to get some real world experience in the big city so she packed her bags and made her move this past month. I've been sending her some links for things to check out. While I was exercising on the treadmill, Live with Regis and Kelly happened to be on and they mentioned that this week would be "Only in NY Week". They would highlight some of their favorite places to go and eat. You can click on the image above to link to their website and view videos of some of their favorites.
Speaking of Heart Choices, Katie made a choice to try life in a new city far from home. I applaud her for her courage and I pray for her safety. I also feel a bit responsible for introducing her to NYC as I took her there for her first visit after she graduated from high school. However, she has secured an apartment and her first job at a salon on 5th Ave! Here is the link to the salon: AKS Salon.
