Chelsea Flower District

A couple of Saturdays ago, I was wandering around Chelsea while I waited for a friend and I decided that I needed some inspiration.  I remembered that the Chelsea Flower District, which has not whittled down to just one street on West 28th Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues), was close by.  The first thing […]

Frieze New York

I’m so fortunate to have girlfriends who love and appreciate art as much as I do.  Yesterday, on the first real hot day of the Spring, I went to the Frieze New York art fair on Randall’s Island with my girlfriends and their sons.  While I was waiting on line for the ferry to Randall’s […]

Gotham West Market

I was debating about whether I wanted to share my latest discovery or not.  I’ll explain in a little bit.  I decided to finally go to the Gotham West Market after passing by it several times on my runs along the river.  It’s located in an unassuming part of Midtown West on 11th Avenue between 44th and 45th […]

Winter Wonderland

I know I complain about the Winter a lot so yesterday, I decided to stop being so negative and appreciate the beauty of the recent snow fall.  It’s a much different story today since everything is slushy and wet.  The moment I stepped into Central Park, my jaw dropped.  I was in awe of the […]

Snow in New York

 {Bow bridge in Central Park | Photo Source} If you haven’t heard by now, New York got a lot of snow and all I’ve been hearing lately is people complaining about the weather and how messy and cold it is.  Myself included.  When it snows in New York, it’s not always as picturesque as you […]

Whispering Wall in Grand Central

There are many secret places in New York City.  One of the ones I discovered last year was the whispering wall in Grand Central.  It’s a four arch dome outside the Oyster Bar.  If you stand towards one wall and start whispering, the person standing on the other side can hear you loud and clear. […]

My Classic New York

When people ask me what my favorite places are in New York, it’s hard to choose because there are so many places, foods, and memories that come to mind.  Also, the same place can have different meaning to me over time.  One of my favorite things to do, as you know, is to wander through […]

Christmas in New York

Christmas time in New York City is such a magical place.  In true New Yorker fashion, it’s go big or go home!  Even though I’m a New Yorker, I do all the touristy things that everyone else does.  Every year, I make my pilgrimage to Rockefeller Center and take my obligatory photo of the tree […]

Coffee on Commerce Street

My favorite thing to do on the weekends is to grab a cup of coffee and wander the streets of New York City.  One of my favorite streets is Commerce in the West Village.  I discovered it while dining at Commerce which is an amazing restaurant by the way!  It looks like a street right […]

Peanut Butter Co

Peanut butter is pure comfort food for me.  I love it on almost everything and it reminds me of my childhood.  My sister and I were in the West Village and needed a quick snack.  I remembered Peanut Butter & Co, an oldie but goodie sandwich shop here in NYC.  It’s a whimsical place that […]

Battery Place Market

Battery Place Market is not your average neighborhood deli.  At first glance, it looks like any other New York City deli with your small produce section, prepared foods, and packaged food aisles.  You look closely and you see Stumpton coffee, Debragga Meats, Van Leeuwen ice cream, and the list goes on.  I was invited to […]
