Madison Square Eats

Madison Square Eats

Thanks again to my trusty Skint, I heard about another great NYC event called Madison Square Eats. Surprise! It is a food fair- in Madison Square Park! (not the big arena, the quaint lovely park). But of course, being New York, this isn’t just a bunch of standard food stands, the big guns of NY … Continue reading

Return of the Raccoon

Return of the Raccoon

As I mentioned yesterday, the sighting of a woodland creature gave us a bit of a shock this week. Well who knew that they might just be more common (and more creepy) in New York than I thought.

Raccoon on Riverside

Raccoon on Riverside

I felt like I was back in Tennessee in the Smoky Mountains this week when I came upon this little raccoon guy in Riverside Park. It was amusing how much attention he got.

The Habits of City Walk-Driving

As I previously mentioned, one of the things I miss the most about my past life is my car. I miss it SO much. Slowly but surely though I have gotten used to living without it. I’ve begun to realize that I now walk like I used to drive.  And it isn’t just me, it … Continue reading

Holy Momofuku

One of New York’s biggest draws is food. And New York foodies like to drop big names. Marcus Samuellson, Tom Colicchio, Daniel Boulud, are all names that raises attention,  noses and  eyebrows in the food world. One of those among food royalty is David Chang owner/chef/whatever-you-want-to-call-it of the Momofuku line of restaurants in New York. … Continue reading

Camping Out For A Salesman

I’ve been wanting to see the revival of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman since it opened on Broadway. It stars Philip Seymour Hoffman (or PSH has we close to him call him) and Andrew Garfield (this summer’s Spiderman and The Social Network‘s dreamboat). I wrote my final AP English paper in high school on … Continue reading

Stick ‘Em Up: Craft Night in Harlem

In the an earlier post, I gave you a tour of my Harlem room. Today I’ll continue that tour with my most bold room addition yet… Wall decals. Now when I think wall decals- I normally think of really cheesy quotes like “Reach for the Stars” “Love is in Our Home” “Home is Where the … Continue reading
