SHBB: When did you start working with SoHo Broadway BID
KG: I started working here in April.
SHBB: Outside of work and studies – what are your interests and activities?
KG: I like being outside, in the winter skiing and when it is warmer hiking or just hanging out by my parents’ pool.
SHBB: What’s the best part of the next thing you’re doing?
KG: I am almost done with the semester, so I am really looking forward to seeing daylight again and actually leaving the library for a couple of weeks before class starts again.
SHBB: Where is your favorite hang-out in the SoHo or New York City?
KG: My favorite hang-out is Madison Square Park. I used to work in an office building near the park and going outside for lunch was such a great experience because you are surrounded by greenery without ever really forgetting that you are still in this huge cosmopolitan city.
SHBB: What is your preferred mode of transportation in NYC?
KG: I love walking around the city and being able to really take in all the sights, sounds, and smells. Every neighborhood is different and seeing it from sidewalk level is a great opportunity to experience it.
