Which direction? Why not NYC...

Which direction? Why not NYC...

I lived all around the city for most of the past 5 years. I've now lived in every borough and even a few spots in Jersey for at least 3 months. Many airbnbs. Many friends couches. Many breaks from the city while traveling. My "home" has been moving all over the place for a long time now. 

So yeah, I've now got a pretty good feel for the amazing city far beyond the tourist areas. This stretch of random homes has been a powerful lesson on how the majority of the real world works and lives.

I lived 2 blocks away from this view for my first 2 years in this little town.
