There are still people out there who love the hustle and bustle of the city.

They know it costs more, but think the cost is worth it.


I loved living in Brooklyn Heights and did so for eight years.
I enjoyed many broadway shows, good restaurants and my favorite thing was to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge. The neighborhood had a lot of famous celebrities living there and it was surreal to see the likes of Paul Giammatti, William Hurt or my best sighting, Bjork!
It is ridiculously expensive to live in that neighborhood and when my husband retired, we moved to a lovely coastal town in MA. If I want the big city, we can go to Boston which is less than an hours drive away.
We have the best of both worlds now. And, the fact that my daughter and two grandkids live close by is a big plus. Beats living in the Big Apple any day.
