I have to admit that it took about a year of adjustment before I truly became accustomed to New York. It’s crazy expensive, teeming with people, and incredibly fast-paced, so while it took some time to find my niche (although does one ever find their niche in the ever-changing NYC?), I’m now content with my surroundings, and more importantly, am adept at the city’s subway system. This past balmy weekend I revisited a few of my favorite areas in lower Manhattan, ending the day with dinner at The Spotted Pig-who cares about a one-and-a-half hour wait when they’ve got shoestring fries? While streets were a bit less crowded thanks to the end of tourist season, I have to admit that that’s one of the highlights of living here-seeing the raw excitement of those exploring it for the first time.
Union Square farmer’s market.
One of the sites I visited on my first ever trip to NYC. Three years later, it’s emblematic of my time here.
The East River Ferry-by far my transportation of choice :)
A week-long visit back in Michigan meant a requisite trip to the cider mill I’ve been visiting since I was in utero.
My big kid back-to-school purchase: Ultra-femme Tory Burch calf hair flats.
Dainty deskside accessories to brighten even the most banal of tasks.
