Fortunately, NYC offers great places where all of us can go to feel like a kid again.

You're probably wondering what I've been doing with my free time since I moved in 2007!? Well, lots, but I still have plenty to cross off my list, so there's no time like the present to get started. Recently, Mike and I headed north from the Upper West Side and landed in Washington Heights. Never been? Travel along with me through this multi-cultural Manhattan neighborhood.
