One thing I love about the Upper East Side is riding the bus with the old people. I love that they talk to me, and ask me questions. I love when they just state their opinion and tell me all about how it used to be.
Also, living uptown during the autumn months is such a treat because of the close proximity to Central Park. I was thinking that no other neighborhood in the city has made me feel more like a New Yorker. It was after all, the first neighborhood in Manhattan built specifically for residents. I am glad to be back on the Upper East Side, and am shocked to find myself even thinking those words.
