Question 2: In what way(s) has living here influenced your designs?

Amrita: I love walking everywhere! There is always something to do or discover in any neighborhood you're in.
Question 9: Any advice for newcomers looking to move here?
Amrita: Live in a neighborhood that suits your lifestyle! If you don’t want to be around dogs/ kids/ traffic horns - don’t live on the UES. If you don’t like nightlife - don’t live in the meat packing district… you get the message. Explore before you settle down.
