"If I Can Make It Here..." by Speedwaye on 4 October 2005 3:08am

As Sinatra famously sang about New York, if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. So, in the spirit of adventure travel, I'm moving to NYC in 2 weeks with little more than a suitcase, guitar case, and winsome desire to become both the city's finest bartender and a boho rockstar like many before me. I've secured a space in a flat with some city friends and have had ample city living experience (my hometown Boston, Orlando, and Cancun among others) so I think I'll land on my feet. Any advice for an intrepid young lady adventurer?

P.S. - For Bostonians reading this post, have no doubts as to where my real allegiances lie...GO SOX.

Well, first and foremost, NYC is nothng like the palces you've lived. I wish you much luck and success though.

P.S. Boooooooooo Yankees. Maryland native and lifelong Orole fan. We hate them here too! HAHAHAHAHA

Oh Speedwaye, go SOX!! I am married to a Bostonian and despise the Yankees. (Grew up as a Mets fan). I'll help in any way I can. What part of Boston are you from? I married a Southie.

Been to NYC a few times to visit and you're right, Patty, it's like nowhere else on earth. I plan on acquainting myself better with the Big Apple via the copious subways - ours don't run very bar-friendly hours.
I'm more northside of Boston but Southie is cool, my mom and some good friends are from there. Plus some of the best Irish bars and St. Pat's celebrations in America!
