My boyfriend and I took a mini-break to NYC this past weekend. As an ad exec, you can’t help but feel nostalgic as you walk through this city and think of all the advertising greats who have been there before you: Mary Wells Lawrence (Wells Rich Greene), Bill Bernbach (Doyle Dane Bernbach), David Ogilvy (Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide) and Marion Harper (Interpublic Group) just to name a few. The marks they made on our industry changed it. Challenged the past and pushed it forward.
It is a little crazy to think about everything that has happened, and will happen, on this 14-mile long peninsula. The city has an energy that is hard to describe. It is full of life, culture and great food! I can completely understand the American Dream of wanting to live in NYC. Am I moving there anytime soon, well not unless that big NYC client calls and I go open EXIT NY! But here’s to hoping!
