Introducing He Said, She Said… Spousal perspectives on a common topic.
He Said, She Said is a new feature where we will each write an article exploring an identical topic or question from our unique perspective: husband/wife, male/female.
He Said, She Said #1: How Do You Like Living in New York City?
We are asked this one question often and regularly. People think we’re crazy for voluntarily moving to New York City and they want to know: how do we like it?
HE SAID. New York is a bastion of spiritual darkness, politically liberal, and decidedly non-traditional on family values. And yet, I love it!
I love the things to do, and I don’t mean shows, museums, or any of the thousand activities that come to mind when you think of New York. I love the open air markets, the street musicians, the parks, the free books and random items to be found on stoops, etc.
The food is top notch. From the unique pizza, endless ethnic restaurant variety, and amazing bakeries down to the street vendors. But we’ll never taste most of it, because the first dozen or so have us hooked as regulars.
In life Susanna and I have always preferred experiences over having things and there is no greater place for life experiences than New York.
