When I was fifteen, we moved back to New York.
I was thrilled.
Moving to the most exciting city in the world was, well, exciting!
My parents looked for places to live in different areas, one of them being a high rise.
This was exciting too.
I had never lived anywhere except the ‘burbs in a single family house.
To live in an apartment building set my mind to racing!
(I thought I was going to be so cool! LOL)
As it turned out my parents dismissed this choice when they found out I would have to take the subway to and from school each day.
My mother said, “No way! They’ll eat her alive!”
I was totally insulted!
So much for my sophisticated life!
