…….so many wonderful times there……music venues, restaurants, theatres, nightclubs etc., all full of people at 3.00am……..and all very safe.
Movies were often made particularly at night. And those fabulous rooftops where people did anything and everything.
Also it was such a great place to walk. The best art galleries only minutes away. Washington Square just 2 blocks…….oh the memories are beginning to flood.
Every block full of interest. East Village and Soho so close. Canal Street just south……..and the subway…….access to Uptown, Downtown, Brooklyn, Queens and even New Jersey.
A friend had a 5,000 square foot loft in TriBeCa. Spent a lot of time there with morning walks to Battery Park. Often saw Robert De Nero and others. Later I biked up and down the westside and all over Manhattan.
I was once told and I know………I AM A NEW YORKER!
I loved every minute and feel absolutely blessed to have been able to live there…….. who knows….one day I may return….
(the above came as a response to a comment on my previous blog. I thought you might enjoy it too.)
