…Returning to Brooklyn

And having an amazing time with my NY family! When I left NY in 2012, I always thought I might try getting a proper visa and settling there in the future, as I love the energy of the place: the buzz of the city, the peacefulness of the beautiful apartment I had near McGolrick Park…
