What's your New York story?

New York Magazine had a wonderful (recent) feature on memories of people who moved to New York, either recently, or as far back as 30-40 years ago. For a city who currently has over 50% of residents who are not native to New York, this article must have resonated with many, as it did with me and something which I like to say about New Yorkers – everyone has a story. 

Mine began on Nov 23, 2007 and to-date it’s still fresh in my mind. True to what the writer said:

“And everyone, in one way or another, fell in love—with men, women, hot dogs, drugs, even the subway (vampires be damned), and, of course, with New York, a city you never just move to. Because you always remember the day you arrive.”

Read the full article here, which also consists of a section where notable (ex) New Yorkers including Maggie Gyllenhaal, Rufus Wainwright and Diane Von Furstenberg shared their stories.
