I remember when I was just starting to look for an apartment here in NYC back in March. It was freezing, there was plenty of ice to had at every street corner and my broker and I covered a lot of ground, stomping through the West Village.
One particular afternoon, Carlos, was taking me to what would eventually be my future apartment and we happened to be crossing 7th Avenue. The crosswalk sign said to not cross. I looked left. I looked right. And then I looked left again. And I crossed, since traffic was clear.
Mid-sentence, Carlos, hurried to catch up with me, as he was still standing at the corner and said, "I think you're going to fit in just fine here in New York."
And I think about that every time I see swarms of folks crossing the street, often in between cabs passing through the intersection. And it makes me smile.
Happy weekend, everyone!
PS: If you're ever in need of a broker here in the city, Carlos Santos is your man!
