Welcome back to another episode of the Tracy’s New York Life podcast. This podcast features excerpts from my life in New York City. In episode 10, I share ‘My New York’ – favorite places, where I’d take tourists on their first day in the city, why I choose to live here, and more.
The release of this 10th episode coincides with the 10-year anniversary of the journey that began my life in NYC. It was 10 years ago that I drove from Atlanta to Manhattan to stay for a week, hoping that I’d land job and an apartment so I could embark on the adventure of a lifetime – moving to New York City.
I can barely believe that a decade has come and gone since that first week of May in 2007. But even more, I can barely believe where I stand now as compared to 10 years ago. If anyone had told me that I’d be a freelance writer and blogger and living on the Upper West Side of NYC, I doubt I would’ve bought into it! Life is filled with curve balls, and my story proves how anyone’s destiny can turn on a dime.
One thing’s for sure – I know a lot more about NYC than I did a decade ago. My blogging journey has made sure of that. And one thing hasn’t changed and I doubt it ever will – I still love New York and I’m incredibly lucky to live here.
