About Rediscovering New York

I’ve lived in New York a long time, and to my shame I stopped taking advantage of all the wonderful people, places, and things that make the Big Apple shine. Rediscovering New York is my way of getting back in the game and reconnecting with the City.

  1. Have you gone down to the South Street Seaport and taken a ride on the Schooner Pioneer? Shotting back to the skyline form the water through the rigging of this charming old schooner is a photographer’s delight.

  2. You do live in a wonderful city as I discovered more than thirty years ago. I’m a Midwestern guy, have been to NYC eight times, and am about to embark on a ninth journey. This time, my wife is accompanying me and she’ll be visiting for the first time. We’ll be staying with old friends who live in Howard Beach (Queens), and will be shuttling to all our destinations via the subway system (they told my wife that they’ll take her any place that her heart desires).

    Best of all, I now have an exciting opportunity to see the city anew through my wife’s eyes. I also look forward to reconnecting with the people — “New Yorkers” — who are among the friendliest I’ve ever known. My wife will also enjoy meeting our friend’s “neighbors”… all of whom were bonded even further during their Hurricane Sandy clean-up (their neighborhood is almost back to normal). We’ll gather/party with many of them… sharing brews, stories, and laughs. It simply doesn’t get any better than that 🙂

I would love to hear from you!
