I was born and raised in NYC. It's a city that has an energy like no other. The French agree. I have found that when I tell a Parisian that I am from New York, you can see the enthusiasm in their face. Most people have a love affair with New York. And, I can understand why.
I am planning to go to the 9/11 memorial when I go home for a visit. This day is dedicated to Chris who was a true New Yorker--proud to be from the Big Apple and he never considered leaving it. There is no other city like it and I am proud to say that I am a New Yorker.
