"New York is the meeting place of the peoples. The only city where you can hardly find a typical American." - Djuna Barnes
I had a conversation recently about making the move to New York. It's not just about the pursuit of a new start, and it's certainly not just about the Carrie Bradshaw complex. It's about being surrounded by groups of people who instill inspiration. It's about immersing yourself in a world of people who are just like you. Passionate, alive, willing to stop at nothing.
The thing about New York is that people come from all corners of the world to live in this life. The young British girl seeking a career in public relations; the artist from a small rural town; the actress who grew up in a family who never understood. There are never any ordinary people--in New York or elsewhere. Everyone has a story--a past, a future and a dream. New York is just the common force bringing them all together.
