The Diversity Of New York City


For me, one of the most appealing things about New York is its vast diversity.

It is a city in which you are surrounded by various cultures, neighborhoods and boroughs, each containing and contributing its own unique flavor. New York City is like a big pot of wedding soup with lots of delicious ingredients married together, making up the special recipe of what makes it so great.

Diversity.

Times Square, Broadway, And The Musical...Hamilton


Prologue:

Yeah I know, another post about New York City. Oh well, what can I tell you other than I've been in a New York state of mind for the past three months. I mean, you would think that I live there from all the posts I share about it, right? I find myself going to visit at least once or twice a month because right now, New York City is where my passion lies. And just between you and I, I can so see myself living there again. You never know.

NYC: Revisiting The American Academy Of Dramatic Arts

Right after I graduated high school in Boca Raton, Florida (in 1974), my parents generously paid for my airfare and hotel accommodations as a graduation present so that I could audition for the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Two weeks later I received a letter saying that I had been accepted. I can't tell you how elated I was because my dream had always been to live, train, and work as a professional actor in New York City.

So when the summer of 74' came to an end, I eagerly boarded a plane from Fort Lauderdale to JFK Airport and began a new adventure away from my family and friends.

I was 17-years old.

The People In The Streets Of New York City


One of the most amazing things about New York City is the incredible amount of people who live, work, and travel there, walking the streets.

And it's ironic, I typically don't enjoy going to crowded social events or things like theme parks and crowded bars and restaurants because they make me feel claustrophobic. And yet, I can visit or even live in a populous city (such as New York), and the crowded streets don't bother me. In fact, I thrive on them.
