Its no secret that New York is my favorite city. The feeling I get when I am there is indescribable, and it is definitely a place where I belong. I fell in love with the city a few years ago when I was on very long vacation, around 2 months with nothing or no one except myself roaming the streets. I saw everything there is to be seen. I made it a point to go back there a few months ago, not for any tourist activities since I have done those, but more as a native New Yorker breathing in some energy. Join me as I share a few highlights of my trip.
