I'm proud that I've achieved this goal in spades. I've found New Yorkers to be very open, engaging and dynamic. The friendships I've forged have been surprisingly easy, incredibly fun, and have added so much to my life.
I love walking the streets of the city, anonymously blending in with all the others. There's a tremendous feeling of freedom that comes with this blending, and it's quite intoxicating to move about this way.
