When the pandemic started, my husband and I took our 5-year-old to the midwest to stay with his parents. We stayed 102 days. After living in NYC for 19 1/2 years, this was the longest time I'd ever been away from the city. When we returned home to Brooklyn, I was SO relieved to be as happy as I was to be back. 911 was scary, but it never occurred to me to leave. I've lived here through the blackout, the recession, the hurricanes, the changes in administration. But after having a taste of what the other life is, I now know it's not for me. I am NY strong. This too, will pass.
