I came across your two-year diary and the new New Yorkers guide and read both of them today. I told you I’m obsessed! I loved your books because they tell a lot for a tourist as well as a transplant. Thank you for all the information! — Cheri S.

It’s nice to read accounts that touch on the actual experience of LIVING in the city. Keep up the fantastic work and I plan on being a reader for as long as you are writing! – Cody M.

I read Two Years in New York City, and the thoughts in your memoir couldn’t have come at a better time.

    Sarah: Just stumbled on blog and enjoyed reading it! I have a similar mission to yours and run the site, It is the “non-tourist” tourist guide to NY. As a 4th generation NYer, I try to share all the insider secrets to NYC – sample sales, discounts on everything, best free things to do, cool events, how to use the subway and more…let me know if you ever want to team up some time, you are a great writer.

    All I have to say is thank you! I have been unsure for awhile about moving New York. I was worried about many problems like how much money I should have saved, how to go about moving there without having a job yet, the list of my nervousness goes on and on but your blog has opened my eyes. I plan to move into my new apartment next month. Maybe I’ll see you there one day! Thanks again and good luck with your writings!
