I work in New York City. I have to go in (from New Jersey) usually around 2 days a week. NYC, to me, has become traffic and crowds and parking garages and more traffic. My days in the city revolve around choosing the best way in to avoid traffic, sitting unmoving trying to get to my next call, and deciding between driving around the block in a vain attempt to find a parking spot on the street vs parking in an overpriced garage. It strips away any of the fun that is NYC. Many days my favorite view is the NYC skyline in my rear view mirror as I am back in New Jersey (yes I do realize that there are not many people who would be happy to be in NJ…)
But this Christmas my friend and I decided to bring our daughters in for a girls weekend! It was a great way to see New York through the eyes of a tourist again; to see all that it really has to offer. To see it through my 10 year old daughter’s eyes!
