Am I a New Yorker Yet?

There's nothing like going home for the holidays to make a person wonder where they really belong. Katelyn and Roxy are joined by Elizabeth Passarella, a southern evangelical transplant who moved to NYC more than 20 years ago


It’s an age-old question for transplants the world over — at what point does your chosen city become home?

It’s that time of year — when the holly is hung and the carols are sung and the wayward wanderers return from places far flung. There’s nothing like going home for the holidays to make a person wonder where they really belong. In this week’s episode, Katelyn and Roxy discuss how New York City has come to feel like home … but so too does Ohio and Colorado. How do we create a new home as adults while holding onto the traditions and values of the places and people that formed us?

The hosts are joined by Elizabeth Passarella, a southern evangelical transplant who moved to NYC more than 20 years ago. She’s embraced the big city grit — without losing that southern charm.
