Celebrating the Greatest Place on Earth NEW YORK, NEW YORK A fter a winter that felt like it would go on forever,


it’s great to finally be at the start of summer. I’m looking forward to taking advantage of the school break and going on a much-needed vacation with my family. However, instead of talking about vacations in far-away places, this month, I’d like to share some stories about my home.

I’ve lived in New York my entire life. I grew up on Long Island, just a jump away from New York City. When I was young, there’s nothing I loved more than visiting Chinatown and Little Italy. As a kid, walking those streets felt like I had been transported to another country. It was something of a dream come true when my wife and I moved to NYC shortly after getting married. There’s so much to say about the city. One article can’t cover it all. Even a trip to The Metropolitan Museum of Art would need a nine-part series to properly explore the 5,000 years of art history. In all the years my family lived in the city, I doubt we did half of the amazing things NYC has to offer. It’s all pretty great. There’s nothing like spending a weekend relaxing in Central Park, surrounded by trees, just eating and people-watching. It’s fantastic! But when it comes to New York, even just walking the streets and seeing the city move around you is a worthwhile experience. If I only had one more day to spend in NYC, I’d spend it eating great food and walking these amazing streets. When I think about what makes New York truly special, I’m reminded of the horrific events of 9/11. I was living in the city at the time. After something like that, the world changes forever. You can’t help but think things will never recover. But then you look around

and see people coming together. The compassion, kindness, and pride of New Yorkers after that event was really inspiring. We have amazing sights, rich history, and the best pizza, but it’s the people who make New York City the greatest in the world. I haven’t lived in NYC for a while now. After residency, I got a job in Westchester, and my family moved there. There was a time when I had my heart set on opening a practice in the Big Apple. Today, Dr. Graffeo and I have two practices, one in Westchester and one in Stamford, Connecticut. It’s a great fit, and I’m proud of what we’ve been able to build over the last few years. I can talk about the joys of NYC all day long, but after living in Westchester and working in Connecticut, I’ll admit they do have some things you don’t find in the city.

That said, I’ll always be a New Yorker at heart, and I wouldn’t want to call anywhere else home.
