the end of our New York life
Have I told you all yet? We are moving.
Last year, my airline shifted a bunch of flying from Cincinnati to New York's JFK airport. They asked for volunteers to go, not many did, so they took the bottom of the seniority list and displaced us all to New York. The commute was awful so myself and 4 of my guy pilot friends all decided to move together. We found a great apartment in Queens and started our life in New York last October.
(my roomies... aren't they all so cute????)
A few weeks ago, we had another announcement. Our flying was shifting again but this time they were completely closing our New York base and opening a Detroit base. This all happens September 1st. Almost one year later.
Right now we are in the begining of another transition... planning for an up coming move, planing for a whole new work environment in DTW, figuring out where we are going to live, where I will be getting a crashpad or hotel for the month before we move, what kind of schedule I might hold and on and on. It's going to get real crazy real fast, What I do know is, I will not have these 4 guys as roommates for much longer.
So, along with me being grounded still (for my sprained wrist), we are trying to take every opportunity to enjoy this city we have come to love for the next few months. I am sure you will see a lot of post about NYC. Hopefully it is all good information you can use for your next visit. :)
