I'm from Seattle which has in it's favor the color green and family and good friends. I lived in or near Seattle for nearly 21 years. It's a great place.
But now I love New York. It's been so good to me. I moved here to get in the action and it's just a wonderful place full of people who do things. I've made great friends, started a business with a few of them and I get to be here where I believe the most exciting adventures are to be had.
Before i moved here, I was scared of it in the same way I am scared of steam engines. There is potential and it takes time to get to know how it all works. I spent 3 weeks going the wrong way on subways and planning a lot to just go out and see a movie and figure out how to navigate to a bar called burp castle to connect up with the movers and shakers.
This little movie makes me happy because it captures the action of New York. People are here to get stuff done and it's expensive and it can be hard and the only way you'll make it is if you give all of yourself and if you do, NYC gives back.
Come visit and just walk around. Go see art. Ask directions on the street from strangers. Walk over bridges. Eat food from streetcarts. Get to high places. Act like you're on your way to the most important meeting of your life and you'll feel the energy of the streets. If you like it, find a way to stay or find a way to return here when you can. NYC will remind you that you are a powerful creature walking this earth and that humans like you can make amazing things happen.
