30 Before 30 NYC


Before I turned 30, I wrote this list of 30 things that I had never done before in NYC but fully intended to complete: My 30 Before 30.

But before I was able to complete the list, I moved jobs and this blog was forced to take a bit of a hiatus… which continued past my 30th birthday. But now I’m vowing to tick off every one of these activities before I turn 31… or maybe 32.

So here is My 30 Before 30-Something list. I’ll be checking them off as I complete them:
