“Concrete jungle, where dreams are made of” and “It’s up to you, New York, New York” could be the most descriptive song lines for the City That Never Sleeps. You can achieve almost anything here; you just have to get out there and grab it. The city is teeming with opportunity, and not only for your career. Want to eat cuisines from seven different countries in one day? New York can provide it, with an around-the-world pass for just $2.75 (a single subway ride). Teeter on top of the city at the One World Observatory, 102 flights up, in the morning and kayak in the Hudson River that same afternoon. Be amazed by musical street performers as much as you are for the ballet dancers at Lincoln Center. New York truly has it all, so what are you waiting for?

West Harlem, NY —
West Harlem is my favorite neighborhood in Upper Manhattan!
West Harlem is my favorite neighborhood in Upper Manhattan and has been my home for the past 12 years. I love the Parisian and multicultural feel of this beautiful Manhattan enclave nestled between Morningside Park, St. Nicholas Ave and the Hudson River. It’s very easily accessible on its eastern side with the A, B, C, D subway lines and on its western side with the 1 train, it is also conveniently accessible with the M3, M4, M5 bus lines.
Battery Park City, NY —
Countless Lifestyle Opportunities!
At times it is easy to forget that Manhattan is an island and sailing is part of its history and culture. As an avid sailor, my youth was spent growing up in New York City and revolved around sailing, boatyards, and sail lofts. This is why Battery Park, being a maritime hub, with the sights and sounds of a working waterfront feels like home. The presence of ferries, work boats and enhance the notion that New York is the third largest seaport in the United States.
Upper West Side, NY —
The Upper West Side really has something for everyone!
Home to Jerry Seinfeld, Meg Ryan in You've Got Mail and Chuck Bass's hotel in Gossip Girl, the Upper West Side has it all! Sandwiched between two of Manhattan's most popular parks- Central Park and Riverside Park is where you will find families pushing strollers, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and some of my favorite restaurants.
