The kids are gone but life is far from over.  In fact, it is just beginning.  If you had imagined grabbing a boxed lunch and picnicking in Central Park, a stroll on the High Line or dining al fresco with the locals at your favorite restaurant, you're in luck.  Your dream is now on sale!

Your four-times-a-year jaunt into the city can be a thing of the past.  Instead of fighting traffic through the tunnel ($15, ouch) and finding that parking garage ($50, more ouch) that isn't full and won't ding the car; your new home could be a few steps or a short Uber ride away.

As NYC opens up post COVID-19, the life you envision remains a possibility.  Invest in your dream today at a discount.  The new exhibits at the Whitney and MOMA, shopping on Madison Ave., take your pick.  And great seats to that off-Broadway play, lecture, concert and ball game are going to happen sooner than you think.   

Moving into the city?  Manhattan?  Absolutely!

24 Meatless Recipes That Carnivores Will Love

"By carnivores, I mean the diehard meat lovers, of course. The ones who don’t believe dinner is complete without it. My brother is one, and I love him, so I’m not passing judgment here. One of the best compliments I hear on the blog is that your beloved “carnivore” enjoyed one of my recipes so much, he (or she!) didn’t even miss the meat."

How To Improve Your Balance -- And Why It's SO Important

Improving your balance may not be your number one fitness goal, but it should definitely be high on the list. Why? Because balance affects every other area of your life — including your workouts.

Think about it: Even walking around requires stability, as does bending down to pick something up, going up the stairs or climbing onto a step stool, not to mention exercises like running, lifting weights and yoga.

What memories will you make in your new home?
Perhaps it will be the extraordinary meals you create in the professional chef's kitchen. Or the poker games, Scrabble nights, book club gatherings or Super Bowl extravaganzas. Imagine rolling the red carpet down the loooong hallway for your guests attending The Oscars (watching on tv!). The simple joy of doing laundry at home, while wearing your pjs, and not thinking about someone else touching your clothing.
