This is it! This is my last post here in New York City. From now on I will be sharing my discoveries and inspirations from lovely Philadelphia. I can't believe the time is here, my boxes are packed and my apartment looks so sad and empty. But no tears, I am excited about my new life and can't wait to share my new experiences with you. Because of my move and the Fourth of July holiday, I will not be posting next week, but I will be back the following weeks with another webisode, more self-nominated Fly Girls of the Week, and a new feature to Fly—Fly Contributors for health, beauty and fashion. So definitely come back soon to see all the new goodies.
In the meantime I'd like to share the Top Five things I will miss about New York City:
5. The subway. As much as it annoys me at times, it is quite nice to not have to worry about parking, gas, a car note, and car insurance. It's the most reliable subway system ever.
4. Living in Harlem and being around the rich history and diversity that makes Harlem what it is.
3. The fashion and seeing people with so much style everyday.
2. The people. I will miss sitting at a cafe or in the park and just people-watch, I could do that for hours.
1. Walking. Walking is mandatory in this city and I love it, and it helps cover that extra piece of cake I love from the Little Pie Company. There's so much to see that you would miss it all on the train, in a car or on a bus. Walking is by far the best way to explore and inhale New York City.

4. The subway. Okay so it is reliable and you don't have to pay a car note but I won't miss the rats, the urine scented subway platforms, the homeless/crackheads being disruptive, the weekend schedule that leaves you waiting twenty minutes longer than necessary, and the crowded ride where I'm always stuck under someone's armpit.
3. Having to plan my grocery list according to how many bags I can carry. They can't be too heavy for walking, getting on the train, and carrying them up those subway stairs.
2. I won't miss the crowds that are everywhere you go, especially on the weekends. Forget about a sale, everything is always picked over.
1. Expensive rent, for sure!
