Ethnic Diversity

Growing up in a melting pot made such a difference. The different people added to the mix of what makes New York City tick. It was seen and experienced in fashion and mostly music.

Food

Here is a city that never sleeps and when you want to say Chinese, Italian or any kind of food you can get it at any time of the day or night. No other city has this kind of service, especially on a 24-hour scale.

The museums and all the art deco

If you never experienced this city there is so much to take in. Just walking around and seeing all the tall buildings is breathtaking.

Central Park 

is incredible and beautiful. During the warm months, we have roller skating and dancing going on with house and disco on the Upper West Side of the park.

New York 

as a state is so huge... You can be in the city and then out in the country within minutes. We have a great summer and we also experience snow during the cold months. There is also Fire Island which is paradise. It's funny that's where disco really had a huge start out in the Pines. All the DJ’s where playing out there during the summers for the rich club crowd and they would bring it back home...
