- 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.
