I cannot tell you the amount of times I’ve been asked, “Aren’t you glad you don’t live in NYC after this?” in reference to Sandy’s destruction. In my head, all I can think about is HOW MUCH I miss New York…now more than ever. There are obvious positives that have emerged since my departure [ahem, husband] but I still think about it everyday. New York changed me. Therefore, seeing a photo like the one below is a mere reminder that anyone braving the big apple is [or will be] tough as nails. My heart goes out to all the people damagingly affected by this storm.
