We had a snow storm and although we were supposed to go to the shore, my husband vetoed the trip.  Bummer because we had invited company for the weekend, I want to go shopping and who’s feeding all of our little squirrel friends and feathered friends?  The rationale behind this decision is that life is much easier in the City when it snows;  Here are 5 reasons why:

Dinner's here!

Dinner’s here!

1. You can always order out-You don’t have to rush to the grocery store only to find that all the milk, orange juice and bread are gone.  They bring you food here! It’s so cool!

2.  You don’t have to shovel your driveway.

3.  You don’t have to drive in the snow, the buses and subways continue  to run day and night, rain or snow.

4. The sidewalks are basically kept clear.  The superintendent and his staff shovel the sidewalk in front of their buildings. The store owners shovel off their sidewalk.

5.  If your car is parked on the street like ours, when it snows the City suspends alternate side parking rules.  We haven’t had to move the car for days now.

Keeping the sidewalks clear!

New York City Smells

New York City is a treasure trove of sights, sounds and smells. The sights are impressive, the sounds often jarring and the smells…well, let’s just say, summer in the City is not a rose garden. Intense heat intensifies the random odors.

A walk past a sewer drain or a pile of garbage and trash can be overwhelming. But tonight, climbing up the subway steps, I caught a whiff of something cooking. It smelled like hamburgers grilling – in NYC?? A few more steps and I found myself standing in front of The Shake Shack. Yum, dinner tonight. Thank you Danny Meyer!

Today is the last day of my photo week, however not the end of my photo posts!  It’s just been a great week for me as Murray has been sending me shots every other day or so.  So even though I did feature a magnificent owl yesterday, today is devoted to birds of a different feather altogether.  Nice play on words don’tcha think?

Some people think New York is an ugly city, dirty and without beauty.  They are SO wrong- There’s so much beauty in The City, it’s all around us.  Central Park alone is replete with beautiful flowers and wildlife;  The birds are wonderful, the ponds full of turtles, frogs and visited by egrets and herons alike.  If outside art is not your thing, we have amazing museums and art galleries filled with every genre and period of art and sculpture.  AND of course not to brag too much, MANY of the most famous artists original work hangs here.
