Doing Time in NYC

Rent stabilization keeps me in NYC for much longer than I’d really like to be here. If you aren’t from NYC you probably have no idea what this is. It’s about the housing laws. To maintain my rent stabilized apartment I am required by law to be here for just over 180 days.  I adore the city but if you live to travel the way I do, 180 days can become a very long time. Sometimes I just want to jump on a plane and leave. Instead I go exploring one of the many immigrant communities that are tucked in pockets like flamboyant handkerchiefs all around the city. These neighborhood jaunts make “doing time’  in NYC a lot more fun.Image

About ninagrandiose

I am based in NYC but travel regularly to India and Mexico. Both of these countries feel like home. In India I scour the country in search of fabulous textiles to incorporate into my clothing designs. I sit back and let the ambiance and wonder of India seep into my consciousness so I can be inspired to write about what India is for me. I bring a limited number of people to India on exclusive and intimate tours of my favorite hangouts. In Mexico I take in the natural beauty that surrounds me and dance the night away. I constantly give thanks for all this and am pleased to share it all with you.

    I completely understand how you feel! Traveling is in my blood, too 🙂 I am happy you come to our home–India–so often, looking forward to seeing you here again soon.

      Thanks, Kriti. Yes, India continues to fascinate and amaze…and India has definitely shaped my life in ways I could never have predicted!
