From 2009 for about 6 or 7 years, I wrote a blog about my experiences moving from Manhattan to Nyack -- the "Move to SUMA."
What was "SUMA"? It was my way of saying that I wasn't really moving to the suburbs, I was just moving to a "hot new neighborhood" like all the other ones that had been popping up: "NoLiTa," and "Noho, and "Dumbo" and all that. SUMA = "SUburbs of MAnhattan".
I wrote about 100 posts over about a 7 year period, some of which I'm proud of. But if you're looking for a diversion, or are going through the suburban conversion experience yourself, you might like it.
I'm currently working on turning the "Move to SUMA" into a book. So stay tuned.
