Some are single, others married, and many are single moms. The place I fantasized about moving when I felt stuck as a kid in my small, Midwestern hometown. Where people were direct, brash even, just like me. My children are ages 4 and 6, and maybe because it is universally true, or just because I am projecting my own childhood experience, I worry my children need a place to run. It is no small thing to go to sleep — blocking out the kooky upstairs neighbor’s stomping — knowing that should one of the kids awaken with a scary fever and need to be rushed to the hospital, there are countless doors on which I could knock.
It took me a few years of adulthood to get up the nerve to move here — until I had the comfort of a boyfriend to join me. This sense of community is what humans crave, but that pull is stronger in cities. Their ties to those places have been loosened by distance and time.
Everyone had a good day networking for Parents Without Partners!!!
Studies show that sleep is one of the single most important elements to a productive day.
If there were 400 hours in a day, I would still never be able to attend all the networking events, conferences, lunches, dinners, cocktail parties, breakfasts and other events designed to bring ambitious, successful people together with the goal of connecting and making money together. Throughout an entire decade in this city, one thing was constant: Whenever I caught a glimpse of the Manhattan skyline — while jogging along the East River near my home in Astoria, Queens, or driving along the New Jersey Turnpike — I always got a giddy shiver down my spine. I achieved my dream of being a writer in New York, but instead of a Dorothy Parker-esque existence (no drunken lunches for me! And yet I don’t relocate to any of the lovely suburbs in New Jersey, Westchester County or Connecticut. My building alone — a 1926 six-storey co-op with about 90 units — is home to dozens of neighbors, ranging in age from chipper-if-struggling musicians in their twenties to the gorgeous Cuban sisters in their eighties who share a one bedroom on the second floor.
Also: NYC has an incredible energy of support and collaboration, especially among women, all of which makes building a great career and the surrounding tribe necessary all that easier to assemble. Many of them breadwinners, so many doing incredible things in the world, statistically far more progressive politically and socially than the mean in this country. For as long as I could remember, this was the place of my dreams. It was easy to network — everyone who could help me in my career was here. ), I spend my days in a sunny home office that doubles as my bedroom, overlooking a playground we frequent almost daily. Some of these people have come to be close friends and confidants, there as neighbors are — through the joys of new babies and the horrors of family tragedy, sometimes bringing by bottles of wine or wrapped gifts for the kids.
