If I won two free plane tickets, I’d head for New York. I haven’t been in New York in years and it would be nice to see all the changes that have been made. I know that a lot of changes have taken place because I always keep track of what’s going on in New York. I read all articles that pertain to anything about New York. If there’s a new park being added to the cityscape, I’m on top of it. If a new restaurant opens up, I know about it. The subways break down, I know about it. New Mayor, ditto. Anything and everything that goes on in New York, I know about.
It would be good to return to my roots. To see friends I haven’t seen in years. It’d be great to hang out with friends and just have fun. Or take a ride on the Staten Island Ferry ; ride the subways; have a great piece of pizza (now I’m hungary thinking about the pizza);visit Central Park; see the Statute of Liberty. Just to see the skyline of New York would be fantastic!
How would you describe what it feels like to feel “at home”? It may be something specific about the physical details of where you’d like to live, or it could be more about how you feel when you are in the right place.
I guess no place feels like home like New York City. No matter where I’ve lived, New York is always on the surface. I compare every place I live or visit to New York. And, somehow, though I’ve seen some very beautiful places, New York always wins out as the place I always feel most at home.
When I think of New York, I think of my family; schools I attended; first kiss; first love; first job; accomplishments and failures; great food; interesting people; subways; great art, and always as home.
When I am in New York, my spirit soars. Just being in New York’s presence makes me feel alive. I don’t feel as alive anywhere else. I remember the good times I had. The holiday season: the lighting of the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center; ice skating; great coffee; the hassle and bustle of New York; the Statue of Liberty in the Harbor; the street scene. Everything that makes me feel alive like no other place on earth. I love the City of New York. I’m glad I grew up in such a glorious place.
