I love exploring New York. No, not the isle of Manhattan, but the other New York, the one you don’t see on television shows like Law & Order or Marvel movie blockbusters. I’m talking about the New York that prefers trees to skyscrapers, farmland to brownstones, and lakes and rivers instead of traffic jams and crowded sidewalks.
