Things I Will Miss About NYC

  • Most of all… my friends, of course: work friends, Shiba friends, neighborhood friends, miscellaneous friends
  • Meeting random new, interesting people at least once a week when I’m out with Snickers. I doubt that many people are out and about at 11pm in the suburbs of Indianapolis.
  • The not so random, wonderful people I get to meet during the course of living life in this crazy place
  • The canine community
  • The smell of honey roasted cashews in the winter
  • NYC holiday shopping
  • The radio morning show I listen to each morning
  • The community dog run and garden where I’ve met so many of my neighborhood friends over the years
  • The variety of food choices, from street meat to gourmet restaurants
  • 24 hour take out
  • The wonderful kids at The Gillen Brewer School where Snick and I have been lucky enough to visit on Friday mornings
  • The ease of taking a cab and not having to deal with parking
  • Long holiday weekend when no one is around
  • The ten minute commute (walk) to work each day
  • Living at the center of the universe

And that’s just off the top of my head!

Awww… those are all cool things, and the best part is I think most of ’em will still be there when you get back. 🙂

We just left las vegas and the dogpark and the friends we made there is what I miss most. We have found a new park but we are not part of the group dynamics yet.

Things will definitely be toned-down, in pace as well as size. Not sure whether they are an artsy community or health-foody or? At any rate, I have no doubt that you’ll be able to fit in and and find good things to do. NYC changes but the fundamentals never seem to. And, I’m SURE you’ll be back to visit!!! You can still holiday shop and get a “fix” every now and then… How many hours would it be to drive? I travel up and down the entire east coast every year, so driving doesn’t bother me…
