730 Days

That's how long I've now been a resident of New York City. Twenty-four Metro Cards and well over 1,400 Subway rides. Miles and miles of walking and countless pairs of shoes.

At least ten walks across the Brooklyn Bridge, three visits to Coney Island, and one visit to the US Open. Three nights in Harlem, two birthday parties in Williamsburg, and a train trip up the Hudson.

Two Christmases and two incoming classes of students. One tour of Yankee Stadium and a Philharmonic concert in Central Park.

Crumbs, Cupcake Cafe, and Sugar Sweet Sunshine. African, Caribbean, and Ukranian food.

And those are just a few highlights of the past 730 days. So you might understand my dilemma in making a change.

I'm really going to miss all this, but at the same time, I think I might be ready for a new challenge.
