It did take me a while to warm up in NYC, after experiencing a month of calm and serene DC, I was overwhelmed by the densely populated NYC.
After the fellowship, I did return to NYC. Only this time I have felt like the city finally embraced me. I spent a week at Stamford, Connecticut and Brooklyn, NY before head to the west coast.
