I’ve spent the past several days in New York and I just absolutely love it. I don’t care that it’s snowing and you need snow boots to cross the street. It’s gorgeous and different. My friend said his kid’s school has closed four days in the past six years due to weather and three of those days were this year. Craziness!
I love the public transportation: uptown, downtown, eastside, westside. It’s impossible to get lost. Believe me, I get lost easily. I love getting reacquainted with the subway system. We need you in San Francisco. MUNI, you suck!
I love the food. Trying out the new restaurants. Gorging on asian, mexican, american, fusion. And drinking cocktails every day.
But most of all, I so loved spending time with my friends: reminiscing with my former GSB classmates at happy hour on Friday, running on the treadmill and doing the 90 minute spin class Saturday morning at the Equinox, heading to Brooklyn to spend time with my friends’ four-year-old son and read his favorite book at least a handful of times, drinking champagne at the Bowery Hotel, catching up with a college friend during breakfast and an elementary/high school friend during lunch on a Monday.
I’m coming back in the summer when there’s no more snow. Always a good time. Thank you NYC and all my friends who live there! I’ll return soon.
