"This isn't particularly helpful, but I leaned on a really good friend of mine that just happened to work at an auto body shop, so she had a lead on a VERY cheap Honda I could buy. Like, under-500 bucks cheap. Anyway, she was also helpful by…"

"What's your budget like for a house? I've only been in the midwest for about a year, but Chicago is a great compromise for me and my wife. We loved NY, but we can't afford it. This is a big city, but feels like a bunch of towns…"

Riding our bikes from Seattle to Portland

Seattle to Portland is sort of like a big thing here. Much more of a "thing" than I would have suspected before I moved here. The act of riding your bicycle from Seattle to Portland (roughly 205 miles) seems like a crazy fringe act. But it's not so fringe around here. It's actually popular. It's so popular that it sells out within days. And we're not talking like 500 registrations, they sell 10,000 registrations for the privilege of riding your bike for 16+ hrs over one weekend. Crazy, huh?But…See More

Food, food, food.

I'm not a "foodie." I think that that term has some negative connotations and implies a certain level of obsession and snobbishness.



I really like food though. I may even love food.



With some major exceptions, I feel like you can find great food anywhere. Of course there's GREAT food in New York, but there's something delicious to be found anywhere and everywhere.



Here are some things… Continue

Biking in Seattle vs. going nowhere near a bike in NYC

Seattle has a really vast system of trails (really pathways) all around the city for biking, rollerblading, running, etc. The great thing (or thing I love most about it) is that the trails don't just go around parks or through the woods, but they bridge neighborhoods and can get you from Point A to Point B.



I never biked in New York. My wife did, all the time. But, I am accident-prone and fell off my bike a half dozen times a month when I was a kid. Not to mention had two bikes… Continue

Renting New York for a couple days.

I just flew back to Seattle after spending 10 days in the northeast. About half of that time was spent in the NYC area. It was a very good multi-purpose trip. I worked 2 days at my head office, saw family in New Jersey (yay family, ewww NJ...), saw a lot of good friends, and took a little road trip up to Montreal.



My first few hours in NY, I was surprised at how quickly I could fall right back into my old routines. There are a lot of little things I had to get used to when I moved… Continue

Hey Adit! I'm feeling frustrated by the rhythm of life outside NYC, and would love your feedback - how long did it take until you got the hang of it? http://lifeafternyc.ning.com/profiles/blogs/out-of-my-element-and

Hi Adit, I moved here for work. Had a great gig with Microsoft, working out of our midtown offices (51st and 6th Ave), but then got promoted, which means a move to the "mother ship" in Redmond.

I live on the top of Queen Anne, though, which is a bit of a commute. Reminds me a bit of the Upper West Side, where I used to live (88th and Columbus).

How about you? What's your story?

I work in PR, leading the U.S. and Latin America. Tons of fun.

hi adit,
it's hard for me to admit i m an "ex-new yorker". i continue visiting the city as often as humanly possible. to be fair, pittsburgh is quite a charm. it's a beautiful city in a very unpretentious way. very green, quiet, but also there are things to do here and there during the weekend. the hills add much to the city's beauty.
but truth is, it's only when i'm in nyc that i feel myself again.
