I just moved to NYC from Florida, and even though there isn't as many palm trees, I love it!
I think one of the easiest things to do right now is to take steps to become more sustainable. I work for Green Irene (www.greenirene.com), which is a company that trains local Eco-Consultants to help green their communities through Green Home Makeovers.
I love meeting new people, traveling, writing and discussing new eco-friendly practices. I am always up for chatting about ways to be green!
