Not A Bad View From Here

Skyline
Photo by myself of lower Manhattan, from the Brooklyn Promenade.

As a thing, New York is pretty neat to look at.

Despite the perks of living in New York, I know a few people leaving the city soon.

One, an ex-coworker, is looking to move out West. One of Mark's friends is moving to Maine, to pursue a healthier lifestyle and put money toward a house.

Today I learned that a friend of a friend just lost her job. She's in law and she's expecting, and may have to sell her apartment.

Not to say there's a mass exodus going on from New York. People come and go all the time.

This place, it is always changing.

I'm a "come-r"! Well, I'm gonna be :-) The Plan is that next year I will be leaving Long Island for the wilds of Brooklyn. Terrifying and exciting at the same time :-) There, now you know someone COMING, not just GOING.

What a great panorama. That's what NY is famous for, besides it's interesting mixture of people.

Yes, it is very beautiful.

And I love change - for people to come and go. It feels a bit sad when people move on but it makes life so much more interesting.

Blogworld is a bit like that too, isn't it? People come and go - a few old trusties stay. And there are some great views in blogworld too cos of people like you!
