While living in New York, I saw many beautiful sights. The shimmering lights, the shining waters of the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, the sprawling Sheep Meadow, but most of all, the poodles that roam the sidewalks of Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
Here are some of the lovely poodles and other furry friends I have encountered.
At the end of August, I made the best mistake of my life. That mistake was moving to Manhattan. A few days prior to Christmas, I made the worst mistake of my life though it was only for the good. That was leaving Manhattan.
The only reason why I would ever classify moving to Manhattan as a mistake was that it raised my standards and expectations on everything. The scenery, the atmosphere, the night life, the activities, and even the food, no other place in the United States will ever compare to the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
Whilst living in New York, I made some of the best memories. Not only did I make incredible friends, I had some unforgettable experiences. The memories of clubbing, exploring, and meeting Niall Horan will always make me smile.
Now that I am back in Connecticut, I realized how high my standards have been set. No longer can I go out and get take out at 2 am or go get a cocktail when I want one. There is no Central Park here within walking distance to explore. Also, don’t even get me started on the lack of style around here.
No matter how much I miss living in the city, I always remind myself how fortunate I am to live within a short distance away. Manhattan will always be there for me whenever I want to go back. Someday, I hope to be able to call the Upper East Side my home once again.
