New York City. The city that never sleeps. The city that captivates, that takes hold, that makes you fall in love over and over again. The city that tells a story the way no other place can. I'm so honored to call it home. Growing up, it didn't seem very special to me. In fact, I would argue that I took every brick and nook for granted. Times Square lights? Didn't every big city have something like that in its center?
It wasn’t until I was much older that I came to appreciate my hometown and why there are so many movies and songs written about it.
I now live in Long Island with my children. Though they have not grown up in Manhattan like I did, I want to be sure that they experience all the city has to offer. That's why our family visits New York as often as possible. We take our children to our favorite childhood spots in Manhattan, creating new moments for us to enjoy as a family.
