We have lived in Maine for 26 years and love the rugged ocean views and natural wonders of this beautiful state. I also feel at home in NYC because we lived on East 86th for 4 years and in a loft on Bowery for 3 years back around 1980. Now my daughter comes to Bank Street College one weekend each month for graduate studies in museum education. We are all artists and love the architecture, museums, diversity and energy in the city. So we are meeting up with our daughter after her classes are over and seeing a play, running the reservoir, shopping, eating and hopefully having your place close by to stay in.
