New York Down South

This is the farthest south in the continental US I have ever been – Ft. Lauderdale. To be honest, there isn’t much further I could even go, and who knows if and when I would ever head to South Beach in Miami. But for now, I’m here, sitting on the fourteenth floor balcony of my hotel, downtown just to my west, the Atlantic Ocean literally across the street to my east, in between a series of canals and beautiful homes and yachts wondering what type of people live there – are they elderly retirees, early retirees, or do they manage to hold down a day job? Come to find out, it’s mostly New Yorkers; it’s unbelievable. And as much as I love New York and its people, I don’t think I would ever choose to live here in Florida. Of course, as I watched the sun rising above the Atlantic Ocean on the horizon this morning, displaying its rays on the shimmering canals and luxurious homes of Ft. Lauderdale, I realized that maybe this piece of New York down south wouldn’t be too bad.
