Service offers guidance on shopping, cooking and more
Two years ago, Nina Keneally and her husband, Ken, left their empty nest in suburban Connecticut for a brownstone in Bushwick, a millennial hipster haven in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Keneally’s husband continues to work as a stagehand on Broadway shows. But after eight years as a counselor in a methadone clinic, Keneally, 63, wanted a new challenge. In forays around Bushwick — from funky cafes to yoga classes to dog walks — Keneally found some of her new, younger acquaintances seeking her out for advice. In many of them, she saw a 20-something version of herself as a New York transplant, trying to make it in the Big Apple without the support of nearby family.
