Can you believe it? Another year has come and gone….
I’m not one for making or keeping resolutions but this year I really want to push myself to do LOTS of fun things in this amazing city. Here’s what I propose, will you join me? -
Enjoying the outdoors -
Last year I didn’t do the Philharmonic in the park (because they skipped last year), I didn’t go to any outdoor movies and barely made it to Prospect Park! There’s so many lovely outdoor options (most that are free) during the Spring, Summer and Fall, this year, you’ll have to stop me from sleeping on park benches (too much?)
Doing the touristy stuff
Us jaded New Yorkers take for granted all the activities that are considered tourist attractions. Yes, they’re full of camera and backpack toting families but how about we play hooky from work and explore some of these options on less crowded days? The above are photos I took during my trip to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. It was so relaxing and lovely and since we did it on a Monday getting around was a breeze.
Too often we’re rushing around to get from point A to point B. What about leaving the house and just wandering around with no schedule or final destination in mind? During the Fall I took a long walk and made my way to the Columbia Street waterfront in Brooklyn. I saw the above bakery and promised myself I would make it back….except that I forgot to write down the name of the bakery…eek…so maybe on one of our adventures we can search for it again?
Happy New Year!
