Being a Local in New York City is
a relatively unheard of concept
that nearly every resident strives for.
To be recognized among millions,
and remembered for longevity in a neighborhood
is something that is difficult to achieve.
Especially people like me, who,
in their first four years of living here
moved 14 times in total, through every borough.
But I achieved it in one part of Brooklyn
and I’m so thankful for the family that that brings
to be a Local means you belong there.
