21 Favorite Things About Living In New York City

New York City is somewhere I’ve wanted to live for as long as I can remember. It’s something I wanted to do before I’d even visited it. Probably because I imagined a life for myself like you see in the movies. But the reality is New York City is more often than not, absolutely nothing like the movies. It’s much, much more.

Despite living in New York City for over 5 years now, I still experience a renewed love for the city all the time. Like when I cross a bridge in a cab, or fly into the city after a vacation, or just walk down the street, or overhear people talking (which is one of the best things about the city). And because in New York, the possibilities are endless.
