Everything in the neighbourhood of this city exhibits the appearance of life and cheerfulness. The purity of the air, the brilliancy of the unspotted heavens, the crowd of moving vessels, shooting in various directions, up and down and across the bay and the far- stretching Hudson, and the forest of masts crowded round the quays and wharfs at the entrance of the East River. There is something in all this—in the very air you breathe, and the fair and moving scene that you rest your eye upon—which exhilarates the spirits and makes you in good humour with life and your fellow creatures. We approached these shores under a fervid sun, but the air, though of a higher temperature than I had ever before experienced, was so entirely free of vapor, that I thought it was for the first time in my life that I had drawn a clear breath.

Oh New York City, we love it here. Since 1986, NYC Real estate is our business and we would not consider anywhere else! We have lived here, raised our kids in the NYC schools and experienced what city living is about. It is exciting with boundless activities to do...or not to do.
Ok, there are pros and cons. You can never have enough space, and costs are high to live here, but where else can you have the career choices, culture, diversity and freedom to be who you are.
Our Priorities are Simple... They are Yours
Nothing less will do.
