I haven’t given up on New York City, but the cons started to outweigh the pros on staying in the city full time as COVID hit in 2020. I still consider myself a New Yorker, albeit one who resides in the sixth borough, Palm Beach.
I have retained the New York grit, work ethic and get-it-done attitude, which actually serves me quite well in Florida, where many take a more relaxed approach to their careers.
