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!

The favorites...

New York City is considered a literary capital of the world, and rightfully so: Many of the major publishing houses call the city home, as do a number of literary magazines including The New Yorker and Harper’s. Both Whitman (Walt) and Wharton (Edith) once lived here.

It’s only natural, then, that this literary capital is flush with independent bookstores. But like so many things in New York City, it can take some work to separate the meh from the magnificent. Consider this your starting list.
