About a month in to NY life. I’m finding a lot of it is, well… by Niche. But beyond that it’s exploring, discovering. Taking the walk over the metro as often as possible (and the metro over car the rest of the time!) Jotting notes of cute cafes and restaurants in my To-Try list (sorted by neighborhood of course!) And moving the best ones I have to go to again into the Tried & True list!
I love love Central park and being so close to it. I found a great running route there and other times will just go get lost in it. Never too lost Google maps bless us all.
My neighborhood in the Upper East side has me entirely enchanted. I love the gorgeous prewar architecture. The white townhomes with columns and black shiny doors & manicured topiaries. Goldendoodles and a million other variations of poodles everywhere. Kiddos and fams brunching outside. The Madison Ave window shopping has me jaw-dropping all the time over beautiful dresses and living room furniture vignettes. And so many spots to snag a good pasta & sip back a yummy vino.
A move can be scary for sure— thank goodness for Facetime, for my best friends and family reminding me they’ll always be there and many visits are to come! First one arriving tonight!! 🙂 Getting used to things little by little and finding my own little nooks and routines. Hoping to carve out something of a smaller world inside this big one.
