One of the wonderful things about New York is that you can feel like you are in a different city just by hanging out in a new neighborhood. Matt and I dog/house sat for some friends this weekend and we treated it like a mini vacation. These friends are very cool and chic so it was fun to pretend we were cool and chic for a bit. They live in Turtle Bay, by the UN, a neighborhood we rarely visit. We had a great time exploring. There are lots of little parks in that area. We ate at an outdoor grill and had gelato. How European!
An inner-city vacation is a great way to save some money, alleviate travel stress and fall further in love with New York Cit or any city! If you can't convince a friend to trust you with their dog, just take a day trip to a new neighborhood.
Song of the Day
Today's song is Rod Stewart's Rhythm of My Heart. When was the last time you heard this song!? It makes me want to put my arm around a good buddy and sing very loudly. And it wouldn't hurt to be pretty drunk too.
