What makes New York City so special? It’s loud, crowded, dirty and Times Square is obnoxious.

But I love it! I love that I can walk in Central Park and feel like I’m in the woods. I’m amazed that I spent $15.00 for a martini last night, and a dollar on the best hot dog I’ve ever had from a street vendor today.

I’m smitten that I heard a dozen different languages spoken in just a few city blocks and felt the rush of the subway under my feet. 

But mostly, I’m encouraged that a city that was attacked just a few years ago is still so vibrant and alive and friendly. 

If you’ve never been to the greatest branded city in America – you need to visit the Big Apple. 

You will heart it too….
