People keep asking if it is “ok to travel there now?” The answer is yes. Unless you’re venturing to to the middle of the island which is still largely without power.

Plus, it’s warm and sunny and a quick flight from NYC! Check out a few of my favorite spots and old friends in this one-minute video.
