Ordinary Days: Surviving the Metropolis

Ordinary Days: Surviving the Metropolis

Most of us are in awe of people who live in New York City – navigating the busy-ness of the streets, the sheer number of people, the thousands of restaurants, the hustle and bustle and the stamina it takes to get from one place to the next. The mere thought of it is exhausting. So […]
