WHERE TO LIVE ?



I lived here during a couple of years, when I was in Manhattan (Madison Ave and 28th Street) from Feb 2001 to Oct 2002.
I like this area, because it is close to my friend, not far from my office, Wall street, China Town, Union Square Market, the Village...
Lot of memories here, and my best friend was living close to me, so it was easy for me to go by rollers or walk by the East river...
