As much as I love the hustle and bustle of the city, the constant go-go-go takes its toll. 

It's still crazy when I pause and think about it all: how large New York City really is, how different each area of Manhattan can be, how much variation gradates the mere breadth of a few streets.

That Upper Manhattan should serve as an escape - that is truly a blessing in disguise.
