I decided to make a trip to where it all began -- my NYC journey. In Fall of 2011, I left the South and came up to NYC for work opportunities after the jobs back home had dried out. The first area I lived was in the middle of Roosevelt Island. It's hard to believe that all those years have passed by already. -
The island has had some improvements since then (Four Freedoms Park, a ferry now services RI). -
I usually come back once a year to see the cherry blossoms. The white and light pink ones are in full bloom right now. The darker pink ones on the East River waterfront are in pre-bloom (those are my favorite ones). The Canadian geese have babies following then around.
