I live in Miami Beach but I grew up up in dear old Greenpoint Brooklyn. I love to ride my bike, rollerblade, shop, cafes, COFFEE, read, travel, dance to anything. The best place to cycle or skate is the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk. Miles of skating along side the beautiful view of the ocean. Otherwise drive 20 minutes to South Beach through A1A and have a real cool time. Lots of clubs at night to choose from. Great DJs visit South Florida every week. Lots to do in the day time and at night. You can do your sleeping on the sand. I cannot see myself moving back to NYC. Life is too good here and on my own terms.
