It's easy to feel lonely in one of the largest cities in the world, even as a couple. Now that you are alone, the excitement that drew you to Manhattan and the other boroughs can now feel scary and intimidating, for lifelong New York women as well as newcomers. All of this somehow gets magnified in urban settings when you're surrounded by people all the time, yet have never felt more isolated and alienated.
While many women will have long established friendships and family even in the same apartment complex, they quickly discover that widowhood creates a different kind of sisterhood that can be understood only by those who have gone through it, or are going through it.
This is where the W Connection's New York chapter comes in. Members of this chapter will know exactly what you're talking about. Through the W Connection, you find a small community of widows who are going through – or will have gone through ¬– adjusting to living in an urban setting without their life partners.
