New York in December

In a first date of sorts with my new city, I walked around some of New York’s most well-known holiday destinations, drinking in the festive atmosphere and filming. Though I’d originally intended for the video to be standalone, I’ve also included detailed information about my “tour” and each of the locations I visited, so it can be recreated by any festive-feeling tourists in the city.

Click the map for more information on where I went, as well as the the landmarks’ hours and addresses. Happy New York Christmas!

While You Were Out

I’ve been kinda caught up in a project lately, throwing myself into research and lists and flow charts and making everything organized and pretty (read: I’m a perfectionist sociopath). I can’t quite spill the details yet, but there’s a lot of exciting stuff going on in my life 🙂

On a completely different note, Jenny is leaving town this weekend and I’ll more or less be on my own. So I’ve decided that (weather permitting) I want to be a total girly tourist and see a bunch of things in the city. This site had a lot of good ideas! I’ve started compiling a list (shocker!) and The plan for the weekend is::

SATURDAY::

  • Run along the water
  • Go to the New York Public Library and get a card 🙂
  • Go to Housing Works
  • See “The Roommate”

 

SUNDAY (Instead of watching the Super Bowl)::

  • Go to the Booklyn Flea Market
  • Go to Parlor salon for an evaluation
  • Walk on the Brooklyn Bridge
