Why I Love New York in 25 Words

Reasons to love NYC I wit & whimsy
The other week I was riding on the subway and I saw ads being run by the Mayor’s office profiling a variety of New Yorkers sharing why they love New York in 25 words. No more, no less. It was fun to see what stuck out to people and immediately had me thinking of what I might select for my 25 words.

If you’ve ever lived in New York you know that it is hard to put into words why you love it here and what’s kept you here despite all the challenges that living here brings. I’ve penned my love to New York on this very blog many times (here, here and here) and after nearly nine years, I’ll admit that the following 25 words I selected were rather easy to compile. There really is so much to love about this crazy, eclectic, energetic, evolving, beautiful city and I hope I never tire of exploring more reasons to love The Big Apple. It felt only appropriate to share photos today shot in the number one reason I love New York.
