Loving New York All Over AgainFriday, May 06, 2011
Sometimes you just need to fall in love with the city again.
So, yesterday: Roamed Barnes & Noble in Union Square; sipped drinks in the cozy, technically guests-only lobby bar of the Bowery Hotel (sketched above); savored delectable tacos at Hecho en Dumbo; and then met amazing children's book illustrators at Scholastic's charity auction reception for their "Read Every Day. Lead a Better Life" literacy campaign. (Go bid on their work!) Humbled by what these artists do with brush, ink and paints.
Still glad I don't live in Manhattan anymore. Still glad I'm just an express train away.
