A Week in NYC

When I returned from Israel, I stayed in NYC for a week at my friend Nina's house in Williamsburg. I felt immediately in my element, just like always. Getting on the subway and exploring feels like slipping into an old routine.

Reasons why NYC will always feel like a home away from home:

Various friends always living in the city

Visiting my friend Rudy in NYC, summer of 2009

 Met up with some of my friends from Israel 
for a concert at Drom in Manhattan

I stayed with Nina this summer, one of my best friends since middle school. We are silly together.

This summer, I went to see Potted Potter with Nina and Mike! 
Sooooooo funny.

Most international place in the US

I had to stop by the UN when I visited NYC this summer

I lived there for a year as a kid

You can practically feel the history in the streets

Exhibit at the Center for Jewish History 

 Teddy Roosevelt's childhood book collection in the house where he was born (yes, I sought that out and spent a whole afternoon there)

Quirky coffee shops galore

I wanted to take Atlas Cafe with me on the road

Diversity in every sense of the word- neighborhoods, restaurants, people

I went to Drom to see a free concert by Raquy and the Cavemen. 
They rocked!

Shopping shopping shopping

I bought this dress at a boutique in Brooklyn, 
and now I never want to take it off

Feel at home on the subway

Beautiful scenery and sites

I went swimming in the McCarren Park Pool in Brooklyn for free, which has been around since 1936, but recently reopened

The city has personality- constant events
