Wading in Williamsburg

  It’s officially blog canon now, how much I love the coastline of New York City. And with so many islands to choooooose from, there’s plenty of opportunities to smell the salty air and feel the water’s wind whipping your hair back

Happy 200th Birthday, Walt Whitman

  I’ll be honest with you: The first time I picked up Leaves of Grass (in college), it bored me to tears.   Maybe it’s a thing you have to grow into? I for sure skimmed the book to pass the class,

So This Is A Brooklyn Spring

  In the countryside, Springtime is evidenced through gradually warming temperatures. The daylight lasts longer. And the trees start to bloom.   In Brooklyn, the telltale sign of spring’s arrival is not the chirps of the returning birds, but rather,

On The (Greenpoint) Waterfront

  I. Love. Being on the NYC coastline.   I like beaches??? Idk. There’s something about being on the EDGE of land. Where land meets water. It feels RISKY and DANGEROUS, like when I went through that weird phase of

The L Train Is SAVED!! Maybe.

We’ve been dreading it. Planning around it. Making forced gallows-humor jokes about it. And now… Well, in a bizarrely unilateral move, Gov. (ptooey!) Cuomo announced that there would be no L train shutdown.  Couldn’t have said it any better myself, cryptically ominous subway tile graffiti.

  I honestly feel like I don’t get enough credit for being as well-dressed as I am. But I AM! I am so well-dressed, in fact, that a few years ago, at the John Lennon memorial sing-along, I got cornered mid-song by

This Is Why It Takes Forever To Walk Anywhere In The City In The Rain

  UMBRELLAS. It’s because everyone is carrying umbrellas.   A normal sidewalk is like a stream, and its pedestrians like fish. Foot traffic hinges on the ability of walkers to blithely slither past each other, faster fish weaving and bobbing
