Lessons Learned in NYC

  • The Met is always a good idea…especially when it’s 90 degrees and humid outside.  I spent hours oohing and aahing over Monets, Renoirs, Central Park vistas and air conditioning.




  • When the city gets you down, go to Brooklyn Heights for a new perspective.  I had the best meal of the entire trip at Jack the Horse Tavern and walking along the Promenade on the 12th anniversary of September 11 was both poignant and peaceful.




  • I’m a California girl through and through.  NYC is great, but there were a million things I missed about San Francisco.  Orelia, fresh fruits and veggies, the Pacific Ocean, the chill in the morning air, Crissy Field, the greenery of my neighborhood, my car, etc.  I may not have been born here, but I was born to live in California.

  1. True that! My hubby’s packing for a business trip to NYC tonight. We’ve never been but unfortunately it’s a two day thing and he won’t have time to look around much. I think it might be too crowded for me in NYC, although I hope to visit one day.

    • Yeah, NYC is fantastic but a few days there are enough for me. I don’t know how I lived there for 2 years when I was younger. Hope your hubby has a safe trip out there and that next time you can go with him!
