You have me beat! I have some posters and a map of manhattan on the back of my door.

I spent my first week there in August and hope to do it again.


the 212 is the clincher though... how do you even go about doing that??

WHY DON'T YOU LIVE THERE YET?

I wanted an iPhone. While I was at AT&T I asked them if I could "in theory" have a home address and phone number (NYC) but a billing address in another state (MI).

They said I could if I had a business plan. With the possibility there, I got excited and asked if they had any 212 numbers. He didn't. They were all taken.

I checked eBay and saw that people were selling 212 numbers like mad there. I ended up snagging my number for like $15 or something.

I get the prepaid sim card in the mail and so I go to AT&T with my phone number in hand. Then in order for them to transfer it to my account with them I had to supply an NYC address. I looked up a guy with my last name in Manhattan and used his address, pretending it was my home address.

That part didn't matter, it was a technicality because my bill comes to my REAL home here in Michigan.

...aaaand away we go!


oh, why don't I live there? Long story short, too many family ties and now with my little daughter, I'm not moving anywhere that takes me farther from her.
