I usually hit Manhattan between 2-3 times a year for business trips. I stay at the Hyatt at Grand Central. I like it there and frankly I know the neighborhood pretty well now.
I never feel so alone and yet so alive. I know so many people in the city. I have family and friends all over and I never run into them unless by design.
It is amazing to me that I can feel this way. So far. So close. So much a part of things. So alone.
